Dear Experts

I am sick of this issue, I have been experiencing same issue in the thread below :

Cannot rename HDDs - [H]ard|Forum

I have got 4 hdds two IDEs (each one 40 GB to be used for storage purpose) and two SATAs (Seagate 500 GB and western digital 1 TB).

SATA Seagate 500 GB has two NTFS partitions named as show below C name as ST_OS (for OS windows 7 ultimate 64 bit) and G named ST_STORAGE (for a storage purpose) I can rename them to whatever I like,,,,please see the snap shot below :

SATA western digital 1 TB has two NTFS partitions as well named F and J ,,,,, please see the snap shot above, whenever I (username that has admin privilege) rename (Right click properties then rename or through diskmgmt.msc tool to edit the drive name) those two partitions as below :

F --> WD_STORAGE1
J --> WD_STORAGE1

I won’t be able to see the names, only I see the letters ( i.e. F and J ) for them
While when I access my computer through the ‘ Safe Mode’ (F8 boot process) I was able to see the name and letter for the SATA western digital 1 TB , please see the snap shot below :

F --> WD_STORAGE1
J --> WD_STORAGE1

I have shared those two partitions [ F --> WD_STORAGE1), J --> WD_STORAGE1 ] on my home network I can see names and letters on other computers that have those two partitions mounted to them (map network drive)

Why am I experiencing this issue ?

Do I need always to live with register editing

Any changes made should be immediately visible. Both within the OS, and to external devices. If anything, you may have to refresh the screen...but that isn't the case here on my PC.
