    I'm backing up my macbook to my time capsule over the network. How can I change the Name: from untitled to something meaningful? I'm backing up two other laptops to this drive.:confused:

    If you can see the drive in Finder, just right click it and rename it.

    If it's a Time Capsule, go into AirPort Utility > Manual Setup > Disks and select and rename the internal disk from Untitled to something meaningful to you.

    Of course, I've had to re-auth all of the laptops that use it for backup, but that took like 5 seconds..
