Hi Experts

Initially I have got 2 IDE hdds  segate (each one 40 GB ) D and G and one


Each IDE hdd has one partition (NTFS)


I named D hdd as : DATA and I named G hdd as : BACKUP


And I have got one SATA hdd (500 GB) that was dived into two partitions C (Active and its OS windows 7) and H,,,,they are NTFS



I named C partition as : OS ,,,,and I named H partition as : STORAGE


Everything was fine till recently I installed a new SATA hdd western digital  ( 1 TB ) which came under drive letter E and I named as : DOCUMENT


Now surprisingly names for G and H (BACKUP, STORAGE) disappeared.


 When I try to right click on each G (hdd) and H (partition on SATA 500 GB) and choose the option rename ,,,,nothing happen ,,,,means I cannot rename them to whatever  they were before


While I can rename partition C and hdd D


And I can rename SATA hdd ( 1 TB ) as well,,,,,,I named it : DOCUMENT


Why this happens ?
