  1. Can I safely change OS volume's label name?


    Hi!


    I'm not sure about if I change OS volume partition label name, there will or won't occur issues with windows system files.

    But I know the risk when changing OS drive letter(Default C:) can have issue with software apps that was selected directory when installation.


    Please, I want to make sure about that and know exactly.

    Thanks,

    Salai Aung Myint Myat

    Volume Label...

    you can change the name (label) of the HD later, just as you change any other file's name
     
  3. Volume Label...

    I was installing win98 on an old computer and I formated the HDD and got this message:

    Volume label (11 characters, ENTER for none)?

    What does that mean?

    name changes??

    If you desire a name change please do the following:

    • Ask yourself if you really need a name change.
    • Make sure you have a good reason.
    • Know what you want your new name to be before you request a name change.
    • Send Urlyin a PM containing a decent explanation of your reason as well as your desired name.
