Windows 7: rename network folder on remote drive

08 Jul 2016   #1

Win 7 pro, 64 bit
rename network folder on remote drive

here is the setup. The office computers are connected to a Linksys ea6350 router, which is connected to the DSL modem. Off the router is plugged a usb seagate drive. Now all the computers have a network drive for file sharing and backups. On the router, I turned on FTP and secure access, so I can access these files by remote computer. Following the instruction did no good. Could access the router but could not see files. After contacting Linksys, the individual connected to my setup and added some network shared folder, as he called it, so now I can see and access the files on my drive with a remote computer. But he gave it bad name and miss spelled the name it was given. I would like to change this name to a more appropriate name for an office. The folder is not on the drive itself. When I click on My Computer, on the left at the bottom is "network" expand that and shows the network id name, call that one "LinkSys" and all other computers on the network. Expand "LinkSys" is the poor miss spelled name of a shared folder, expand that is the files on the drive. I just want to change that bad name. any help?
