Can I rename my Macintosh HD Hard Drive? I had a recent problem with After Effects not loading. It's a brand new iMac and had a clean install of Adobe Production Premium CS6. I do have a few plugins installed that I purchased from Video Co-Pilot and Mocha AE. But I can't imagine those plug-ins were the culprit. However, I did rename my Hard Drive prior to the not-loading problem.
Could renaming my Macintosh HD have had an effect on that? Or am I being paranoid?
Renaming your hard drive after installing applications may interfere with those applications' ability to find and load required components.
Uninstall and reinstall the applications.
When I set up a new Mac I always customize the boot drive name so that they is easy to identify on the network. Never had a problem, but then again I've never renamed a drive after installing a bunch of software. Every drive on my network has a unique name.
