    If someone has any advanced suggestion that can modify some operating system file that can do that, or if someone knows some 3rd party app that can do that for me, that would be awesome.
    It looks as if you've used "Old/New Explorer" in the past because that's how it shows as "Windows 7 Classic Drive Grouping"- 'Hard Disk Drives'
    It's called 'Devices and Drives' by default.

    Nothing is outdated. If you do not like it, then write your own Operating system. Even Mac OS and Linux calls SSD's Hard Drives. That is because of the interface that they are connected to and not every computer, laptop or tablet like the Surface has a SSD in it.

    Even five decades from now if we are still alive, they will still call the internal storage device a "Hard Drive", short for "Hardware Storage Device" Drive.

    IBM created the Hard Drive and they can still ask for it to be called that, since they still hold the patent on the design of the device and interface design in how it communicates across the Data Bus.

    Argue it with IBM. They patented the design and the name and it will be continued to be called a "Hard Disk Drive Storage Device/Interface" for a very long time. Platter Drives are not going away anytime soon, since there is not any type of Solid State Storage yet that is fast enough for use in real world use for science and CGI.

    Just be glad that we do not have to deal with the 16" Platter stacks anymore.

    I'm afraid Soft drive could bend.

    I'm chuckling at this discussion, but also thinking "As usual, Kari is the voice of calm and reason." You so often call out the emperor's (lack of) new clothes for exactly what they are. Thanks!

    I suppose we could always go back to DASD (Direct Access Storage Device) but that would include SD cards, CD/DVDs and flash drives.

    Yes. I forgot to mention that I'm using old/new Explorer. I tried asking at the forums there, but I was told that the naming is hard wired into the operating system. So I came here to ask where is the specific file that has the names so I can modify it.

    Well..., there's 2 to 4 .dll files you'd have to modify, based on your architecture, and a couple .mui resource files!
    For what it's worth, I wouldn't bother, probably fubar something up!
    I wouldn't even try it, and I'm usually willing to try anything!

    Oh alright. Well thanks for your response. Good thing that you understand what I'm talking about! I don't even know what happened to the majority of all the responses from earlier! I just like seeing the local Drives separate from everything else in File Explorer with a proper title for them, lol.

    Alright, well if you ever do come across anything of that nature, I hope you remember about this post and reply back here! =D
