I have got 4 hdds two IDEs (each one 40 GB to be used for storage purpose) and two SATAs (Seagate 500 GB and western digital 1 TB).
SATA Seagate 500 GB has two NTFS partitions named as show below C name as ST_OS (for OS windows 7 ultimate 64 bit) and G named ST_STORAGE (for a storage purpose) I can rename them to whatever I like,,,,please see the snap shot below :
SATA western digital 1 TB has two NTFS partitions as well named F and J ,,,,, please see the snap shot above, whenever I (username that has admin privilege) rename (Right click properties then rename or through diskmgmt.msc tool to edit the drive name) those two partitions as below :
I won’t be able to see the names, only I see the letters ( i.e. F and J ) for them
While when I access my computer through the ‘ Safe Mode’ (F8 boot process) I was able to see the name and letter for the SATA western digital 1 TB , please see the snap shot below :
That's a strange one..I have a multiple drive set up too and I have 2 that are shared on my network but I don't suffer this issue...
Have you checked your permissions under security to see that you have full access?
I will look for some kind of solution to this......
