usb stick renamed by MS 'Fix-It' - can not change name back

Was having issue with one usb external drive and usb connections...down loaded MS Fit-It for usb connections (MicrosoftFixit-portable.exe) and ran.

No my HP usb stick is named Fix it Portable (N) and I can not change it back. Not sure what happened but how can I get this named back to the original "HP 125v USB"...I can access the files on the stick...just can't rename it trying various ways ?
