New Hard drive name
I purchased a new hard drive and named it NEW-BACKUP. I did a exact
disk copy from my old BACKUP drive. My wife uses the old drive now. I
have renamed my new drive to BACKUP.

I am doing complete system backup's pretty frequently. To verify that
the backups are happening, I typed in the command "wbadmin get versions"
and got a list of the backups. The disk name showed up as "NEW-BACKUP".
"NEW-BACKUP" is the destination drive for the backup and renamed as
"BACKUP". Why is this happening?

Any information appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Easy, just remove what is called the "label" from the harddrive.

Start > right-click on "Computer" and select "Manage" > to the left click on
"Disk Management" (it's under the "Storage" node) > in the bottom section,
right-click on the drive in question and select "Properties" > hight-light
then delete "NEW-BACKUP" in the text area > click "Apply" then any OKs.

Whoops, sorry, ignore my response, I thought you wanted to remove the label.
