I'm not referring to the brand, but what you have actually named it.

I just got a new external hard drive and was wanting to name it something video game-related but I can't choose between the options. It's killing me.

Proceed with your hard drive names!

256 SSD, 128 SSD, Raptor, Storage on my gaming PC.

128 SSD, TV1 2tb, TV2 2tb, Movie1 2tb, Movie2 2tb, Temp 1tb, Storage 2tb, Images 1tb on my home server.

Tardis, Bootcamp, Storage, NTFS on my Macbook

Not horribly interesting. At once point, I had a second gaming PC for guests. PCs were named Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthazar.

I go swimming through so many hard drives, I need to know what's on it once I've mounted it.

Local Disk (C:)

My external silver-colored Seagate drive is called "Silver Bullet". Because I thought it was clever.

Local Disk. They've always been local disks for me, even the external drive.

Nothing too clever on the PC, generally just let it stick to whatever it defaults to. But, on the 360, I thought it was weird that it asked me to name it so I name it "Jim". Jim, unfortunately, was kidnapped. His son took over his spot though, Jim Jr.

I name them based on the operating system and content. Such as "Win7" for the drive that holds my windows installation and most programs. "Win7 Games" for the drive that holds the games to that installation of windows, and Steam. And "Storage" for music and videos and miscellaneous crap. No SSDs yet.

My hard drive is named "Macintosh HD", because, y'know. Pretty much all of my external devices/drives have Starfleet designations for names. My thumb drive is NX-74205.

Wow, that's literally the name of my Xbox hard drive. I'm not sure why I renamed it to that... I don't know.

  • Macintosh HD for the internal drive
  • Iniba for the time machine drive
  • Midgar for the external drive
  • Galia for the PSP memory card
  • Key Chain for the thumb drive on my key chain

I should probably rename my key chain one to be my name or address for incase I lose my keys. Macintosh HD could use a more interesting name too.

The very creative name of C.

issun for my usb stick, red-xiii for my slightly bigger red western digital and big-daddy for one of my terra's.

#33 Posted by believer258 (11948 posts) -

It's just called "Justin (C:)". I did that two years ago and have paid it absolutely no attention since; it is "C:" to me.

I have a second partition that used to be named "Music, Movies, Games (G:)"; the reasons should be pretty obvious but it now houses Ubuntu (...OK, not really, but that would take a long time to explain) as well as my movies.

I have third that the damned Windows 8 Beta created that's just a recovery partition. I formatted that sucker but it's still called "HDDRECOVERY (K:)" and has... stuff on it. I've got to rename it something creative along with the other two because of this thread now.

#34 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

D is main one and then k is the new hard drive. the main one would be C but friend made the portion for windows called C.

Local Disk (C:)

Not sure why you would need to name it.

Other times I switch it to:

"Eternal Jimmies."

When I get a new computer, I'm naming one of the drives that.

#44 Posted by Stonyman65 (2724 posts) -

Local Disk (C:) and Storage (D:)

I usually have my C drive named "windows" or "OS", but I didn't bother this time. I just plugged it in and let Windows run the formatting wizard and I was done with it. The other drive I had to enable, so I just went ahead and chose D: and named it storage.
