    mac hard drive number "2"
    Imac running 10.8.4
    About a month ago I noticed the number 2 had appeared under the hard drive symbol on my desktop. Does anyone know what this signifies and does it constitute a problem of any sort?

    Specs:
    2011 13" MBP 2.3ghz, 8gig ram, OS 10.8.5
    From what you describe...it sounds like the name of your HD was accidentially renamed "2". I would simply click the this "2"...and rename the HD.

    If I am misunderstanding...please post a screenshot of the issue.

    If this is just a naming thing...it definitely does not constitute any sort of problem.

    Thanks,

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    Even better go into Finder Preferences and remove from the desktop if it is a worry to you.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
