I have given desciptive titles to the four partitions on my main drive, but recently a game that I installed gave its own name to the partition title;I have since deleted it but title stayed in place and defies all attempts to correct it. Any ideas , please
I've got 4 partitions- all created from one drive. The first I left as C, so as not to rock the boat - the others have been X,Y,Z,etc, each with various names. I've changed them in Windows Explorer several times - but this one drive refuses to be changed
Renaming them in Explorer does not change the root name of the volume, only how it appears in its friendly form in a folder window or save dialogue. This game that has taken over a volume name has done exactly that, and then made the name - for want of a better description - read only. Why it has done this is anybody's guess; I suppose only the developer could answer that.
Usually, when I have to deal with difficult little problems that won't be sorted through bormal means, I resort to a good old-fashioned registry hack. With careful searching, it is sometimes possible to find the faulty reg entry and modify its value or delete it altogether. In your case, as the offending software has been removed, I would find and delete any entries that pertain to it.
