    This might be a curly one, recently have noticed the drive OSX 10.5 is installed to has had its name changed to this following string on meaningless dribble \````` p-f:..:l.l

    Does anyone know what has happened and how I can change it back?

    Regards, Shomenno

    Someone probably pressed enter and then a bunch of random keys when the hard drive icon was highlighted. Had this happen with kids smashing buttons on my external keyboard on an iMac.

    Just change it back by highlighting the hard drive icon, press enter and then rename it to whatever it was. Hope this helps.
