Can't change Drive name

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
OS: Win Server 2012

Ok, so I just rebuilt the BCD because windows decided to put it on a secondary drive I had to format.

After doing so I booted into the OS and noticed my drive names changed to local disk. I can't seem to be able to edit two of them. D and J. I change their names, but once I save it it disguards the changes.



What do I do?

    I'm not sure, but I do know some places to look.  Do the labels show up correctly in Disk Management?

    Is there a file named "autorun.inf" on the root of either D:\ or J:\?  The autorun.inf file is sometimes hidden, so you'll need to enable viewing hidden files in Folder Options to see it.  If there is an Autorun.inf file, either delete it, or open it with Notepad and remove the line that reads "Icon="

    Do you have this registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons?  If so, does it contain a "DefaultLabel" entry for D:\ or J:\?  If so, delete the "DefaultLabel" key(s) for the affected drive(s).

I wound up just formatting and guess what? Still didn't work lol. So I backed up the RAID array and recreated the array and it fixed it.
