HDD Label/Volume Label
#1

Is there any way to get the Labels/names of HDD to show under the Device Storage section?  If not, can it be added.  Some of my clients have several physical/logical drives and it's hard to tell which drive is which.  I have seen that that SIW uses the same order as Disk Manager but it is a pain to go back and forth.  A couple of my clients have 30+ HDDs.

By putting the volume label (below or instead of the highlighted section in the attached picture) as another entry below this it would help to identify the HDDs quickly.

I tried searching for a post of this but couldn't find any.

Thanks

What do you mean by "the Labels/names of HDD to show under the Device Storage "?

One Storage Device can have one or more partitions.
Some partitions are "assigned" to logical disks, and some are not. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disk_partitioning
For non-RAID storage devices, SIW shows the Drive Letter(s):

They use SAS controllers in non-raid mode for their drive controllers and each drive has a single partition with a volume label but no drive letter is assigned.

I just looked at my system and saw the drive letters assigned to each partition on each drive. Honestly, I never noticed that before.

Both of my drives in an external 4 bay case don't shoe any drive letters. the box is running as a JBOD rack only, no raid, via USB.

Since this is my machines with only 2 drives in the case, I know which ones are which, but clients with 30 drives (logical names) is where I have an issue.

Thanks for the quick reply and I really do like your program.

A Storage Device can have 0, 1, or more partitions.
You want to see the partition volume label, right?

My apologies for being off here for so long. Life got in the way again.

Yes, that is what I'm asking for. The way I have my clients set up there is just one volume on each label but I do have other drives in their system that are partitioned.

Thanks for your help.

I will update the Storage Devices module to show the volume label(s).
