    My hard drive has been renamed from its numerical size to untitled 1. I don't know how this happened . I wonder if someone can tell me how I can rename it , or could it be a hardware problem

    What has happened is that your hard drive has been converted into a core storage volume.

    I'm guessing your HD was called Untitled 1

    Mine was renamed to Macintosh HD

    Right click on the partition in Disk Utility.

    Select 'Reveal "Untitled 1" in finder'

    Right click "Untiled 1"

    Select GET INFO

    Select the text "Untitled 1"

    Press DELETE

    Type the name you desire.

    That’s odd.

    Try left click on partition to highlight it. Press -R or CMD-R depending on your computer.

    That should work. If not, Highlight it, and select File: Reveal in Finder.

    Yosemite converted the volumes to core storage and caused this.

    Run this command in Terminal and post up the output. Also tell me the name you want it to be. With those two pieces of info I can give you the Terminal command to rename the volume.

    Code:
    diskutil cs list
    You won't be able to do this in Disk Util with that core storage turned on.
