I'm about to do the same process. The external Firewire drive I've been using for back ups is named "Insider" and I'll want my new internal HD to be called "Macintosh HD". Does this mean I should rename the external drive to "Macintosh HD" as well?

Also, if that's the case, is there any danger in changing the name of the external drive that I have already been using as a daily SD! backup drive for a while?

When I'm finished with the internal HD replacement I'll want to go back to using my external as my daily SD! backup drive. Should I then change the name back to "Insider"?

And lastly is changing the name as simple as clicking on the name and changing it, as you would a folder or document, or is it a more involved process?
