When I try to right click on each G (hdd) and H (partition on SATA 500 GB) and choose the option rename ,,,,nothing happen ,,,,means I cannot rename them to whatever they were before While I can rename partition C and hdd D And I can rename SATA hdd ( 1 TB ) as well,,,,,,I named it : DOCUMENT http://i55.tinypic.com/2e4wzl0.png Why this happens ?
