Here is some information for renaming the physical drives. If the drive is created with Subst command or by another software utility than you can’t rename the drive.

Within the Properties window, type new name in the “Label” Box and Click on OK.

Here's how I would do it:
 
There are different ways to rename your physical drives, for example:
 
* Open My computer, then right-click on the drive you wish to change, select Properties, and then type the name you want in the Label box and click Ok.
 
This applies to different versions of Windows, such as Windows 95, 98, NT, ME, 2000, XP.
 
There is one other way to change the name of your physical drive using MS-DOS prompt. It's quite easy, you just have to start MS-DOS prompt and type:
 
Label C: new_name
 
Instead of new_name just type the name you desire. You can do this for every physical drive

You can only do it for physical drives. If the drive is being created with the subsets command or any other software utility, then you will not be able to rename the drives.

Only for users of Windows 95, 98, NT, ME, 2000, XP:

1. Double click the My Computer icon.

2. In My Computer, just right click the drive you want to rename and click Properties.

3. Within the Properties dropdown menu type your desired name in the "Label" box and click ok.

Important: Ms Windows users can also use the below command line steps to change the name of the desired drive.

Windows 3.x, MS-DOS, and Windows command line users:

To change the name of a hard disk drive from a MS-DOS prompt, just type the text; substitute "yourname" the name you want to wish the new one.

Label c: yourname.

This will rename your C: drive to yourname. Substituting the c for any other drive letter will give your desired name to that drive.

Hello Dear,

It is very easy to rename physical drives. You can rename these drives as well as renaming files or folders by pressing the F2 key.

Just open My Computer, and right click on C drive and choose the “rename” option. Or, select the drive that you want to rename by single clicking on it and pressing F2 key, then give the drive the name you desire and press enter.

It will be renamed.

It is a very simple method, there is no need to type long commands to change volume labels in DOS. Thanks.
