Running up-to-date Sid - I have a USB stick more or less permanently
installed. The system calls it 3.7 gb removable volume. Can this name be
changed? I haven't yet found a way


Thanks

Try setting a volume label for it! It should then be picked up

I referred to this the other week as I needed to do the same.
