    Can't rename any drive to "M"


    When I try to rename any drive, external or internal, the drive isn't seen in "This PC". Any other letter works fine. The renamed drive can be seen and even accessed (right click > open) in Disk Management or MiniTool. It was suggested that I try "mountvol /r" but to no avail. Of course the easy fix is to just pick another designation. But that would keep me up at night.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    :)
     

  2. Can't rename folder.

    Thank you for following the steps. What we can try is using the Command Prompt to rename the folder. Kindly follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key and type "command prompt".
    • Right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.
    • Enter this command: cd /X: (X represents the drive where the folder is).
    • Copy and paste this command after entering the first one: icacls * /T /Q /C /RESET.

    Feel free to contact us if you need assistance with Windows

    Can't rename any drive to "M"

    unable to rename external hard drive

    I tried what you said, but it still says "you need permission to perform this action". I have access to everything on the drive. It is only the autorun.inf that i no longer have access to and because of that when i rename the drive it shows the new name
    in disk management but it stays the same in my computer. I am using windows 10 pro.
