    Renaming a drive


    Hi. Still learning Win 10 ways! I have installed a WD My Book backup drive, and Win 10 gave it the designation of my "G" drive. How do I change from "G" to a different unused letter?

    Thanks for your help.

    Open computer management/disk management. Right click the drive/partition and see if you can change it.
