    Hi Guys
    I am new to Mac, Just upgraded my white 60gig HD to a WD 120 gig. During the process of formatting the drive I did not name the drive in the Disk utility so I ended up with a HD named “Untitled”. Could I easily rename it, and how?

    I am afraid to miss thinks up because the other day I changed my Home short name “ Just right click …!” and it screwed my system. Is it the same with HD name?:eek:

    Changing your home directory name is bad... changing your HD name should be fine.

    Open a Finder window, click on the hard drive icon and press CMD-I to open an Info window. Type a new name in the 'Name and Extension' box, and you're done.

    ...Or select the HDD icon, wait two seconds, and click on the name to rename. (This will work with any file or folder in OS X.)
