Been on a mac since my 512. Managed over 100 users at a time but never saw this one.

If you look at the picture, drives are named in directories like SD5. Empty trash under the apple is named A3 and A3.1. Cut under edit is ME1... label is LB1.

I am in 10.6.7 on a 2.4 MBP.

Thinking of trying to update and seeing if that fixes it. I have tried a bunch of different things to fix it. Onyx finally got rid of about half of another bunch of strange things but not all.

Any ideas?
