View Full Version : Partition name changed issue

02-17-2011, 04:33 PM
I had a drive with one partition, it was named Main2
I cloned the data across to a larger drive which was temporarily called Main2new
I renamed Main2 to Main2org
and renamed Main2new to Main2.

Before the drive transfer I had a scheduled SD Smart update from Main2 to Bud2

After the transfer SD defaults to using Main2org in the Smartupdate to Bud2 process.

I have deleted the Schedule entry and restarted the Smart update from Main2 and set up a schedule entry for it. Next time the schedule runs it attempts to pick up the data from Main2org.

All renames of the volumes have been done in Finder

How can I fix it (apart from removing Main2org from the machine.

Thanks for any help

Sounds like Main2org was never erased with Disk Utility on receipt, and may have the same UUID as one of the other drives. Possible?

Main2org has only been renamed using Findder I did not wan to rease the data.

How do I change the UUID without deleting the data on the drive.

You'd have to use hfs.util to do it in Terminal. It's a bit complicated to do - are you very comfortable in Terminal?

Not too comfortable - at the moment I have now unmounted the the Main2org drive so that it is not online - I will see what happens now

Drop me a support email and I'll give you some detailed instructions that should help. (I'd put them here but I don't want people searching and trying this without getting guidance.)
