    How do I rename my wbfs partition

    How do I rename my wbfs partition from Local Disk to something like DONOT_Format_Games?
    I always gets confuse which one is my wbfs partition in windows explorer when handling several external usb hdd. I also modded several of my friends' wii and I'm worried that somebody who is not aware might format it (like my friend's family member).

    Is this doable?

    You don't because your computer cannot see it as a partition at all and therefore won't let you change the name....

    Well thats not quite true. Your correct about windows not being able to read a WBFS drive, however you can name the partition whatever you like using EASEUS Partition Manager.

    My WBFS partition is named "Games" and my FAT32 Partition is named Apps/Movies.

    I did this while setting up my partitions.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Does formatting in wbfs manager remove the partition name made by EASUS?

    No! You choose the drive name you want to format,load it,then format it.
