    How do I change my external HD disk description in Disk Utility?
    How do I change my external HD disk description in Disk Utility? I can change the mounted partition name, but not the disk description (which is right above it). Thanks!

    You can't.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
