3. It is currently named as
'/media/8eef3b99-c17b-4913-ae61-d34c7fd5d459_ ' and mounted via fstab.
I've tried using e2label as follows;-
sudo e2label /media/8eef3b99-c17b-4913-ae61-d34c7fd5d459_ /media/backup
e2label: Is a directory while trying to open
Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock.
So I tried using rename as follows;-
sudo rename /media/8eef3b99-c17b-4913-ae61-d34c7fd5d459_ /media/backup
Number found where operator expected at (eval 1) line 1, near "/media/8"
(Missing operator before 8?)
Bareword found where operator expected at (eval 1) line 1, near "8eef3b99"
(Missing operator before eef3b99?)
syntax error at (eval 1) line 1, near "/media/8"
How then can I rename it please?
