This is kind of trivial question. I accidentally renamed the icon on my desktop for my hard drive. I have a MacBook Air. I have no clue as to how this happened. I type way too fast! Anyway, does anyone know what the original name is for the hard drive icon? The description. Which drive is it? I just want to name it back what it should be so there are no issues down the road of mapping to the right folders, etc.

Thanks!

Not sure if it really matters what you call it, but the default for mine is just "Macintosh HD".
Hope that helps.

Thank you! I'm not sure it matters either, but my bf told me it might. Just wanted to be sure.

Since we're here, what are others naming their OS X partition?

Mine is Black Mask.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Apollo. I name all of my storage devices after Greek or Roman gods. My iPod is called Mercury, my 2GB thumb drive is called Zeus and my TM HD is called Poseidon. Why? No reason.

Haha.. Great stuff..

Unique and weird.. Zeus should be more than 2GB


As for me, nothing special. Macintosh HD.

Though, I may change it to WhiteBook in honor of chas_m
