Windows 7: Partition name looking weird

Partition name looking weird

I just clean-installed my OS and noticed that a recovery partition (I guess it's a recovery) has a long name of characters and letters. I did format it before installing OS to remove the remaining old Windows OS files. Is there a way to rename it like D:\ or something?

Hi ThrashZone. Thanks for your reply. I should have done the screens, of course.. Using disk manager option I renamed it (it was just blank in the manager and a weird name displayed only in the defragmentation utility). All partitions are healthy now. Hopefully nothing goes wrong. Thanks again.
