So the question is, how do you rename them? I see the computers in the network on Windows Explorer. When I click my computer [in the network], the hard drives I've chosen to share all appear as shared folders. But whereas each of those hard drives has a Windows-assigned drive letter + descriptive term [for example, "D: Movies"] in the navigation pane under "Computer," each appears as only the drive letter when the computer is clicked in the navigation pane under "Network."
Right clicking on any of the drives will give you Properties in the context menu, but there is no option to rename them in Properties.

You need to be logged onto the system the hard drives are on.
Open My Computer and right click on each hard drive in turn, one at a time and do the following:
Select Sharing and Security.
Uncheck Share this folder on the network then click Apply. You can't change the name once it's setup, you need to delete it and setup a new one.
This will remove the existing share. Now setup a new one.
Click on the link labeled If you understand the risk but still want to share .....
Check Share this folder on the network
Enter the name you want in the Share name: box then click Apply
That's it. You should now see the new names in your Network Folders. You may have to refresh them firest (View / Refresh or press F5).
