Windows 7: Macrium Reflect SSD drive clone; disk naming convention/issue...

Macrium Reflect SSD drive clone; disk naming convention/issue...

For starters, the Macrium Reflect Pro cloned my drive flawlessly...couldn't be happier (and to a larger correct partition on my new SSD Samsung 830, 128GB drive). However, in some aspects, I can see in Windows 7 where the original Disk name 'CDM_Recovery' still pops up. I can't figure out a way through Device Manager or Manage my Computer to remedy this. I have a feeling that this is why my 'Samsung Magician' software never finds the drive. I've updated to the latest firmware for the drive and I'm using the latest 3.1 flavor of the Magician but it stubbornly refuses to acknowledge it's present (I think it's the naming and/or drivers currently loaded)...even though I've now located it as the primary drive in my laptop (original LITEON SSD which came with my Dell 6420 is now my external drive/clone copy). I also noticed that the drivers are all 'Intel' and of the 'generic' flavor for the drive; my concern is that I'm not getting full functionality with it set this way. I do see where the name is in the Registry, but it is held in many locations...don't want to screw that up...unless there is a excellent mapping strategy to accomplish it. There was one Windows support article that describes changing partition names, but it only shows altering one item in the Registry...doesn't seem near enough complete. Thoughts anyone? Do others have this issue when they clone? By the way, many thanks for the Macrium advise, great product and tutorial...!

Correction to my last...the 7.9 Windows 7 performance rating was with the Samsung 830 SSD in the internal drive location, I have the original Dell 'Lite-On' SSD connected externally with eSATAp>SATA cable and use it for backup (I think it had a 7.2 Windows 7 performance rating when resident in the laptop)...nice improvement.
