Error -1017 on renaming a volume

Recommended Posts

7.6.123 w/


Is a Retrospect "volume" a real object with its own name or must it always have the name of the underlying disk folder?


I want to set up separate archiving jobs for several different 2nd-level folders:






When I create volumes for them the volumes get named "clients", "personal" etc, and I'd really like the volumes to be named "photoClients" and "photoPersonal". When I try to rename the volume I get "Trouble Rename, Error -1017 (Insufficient Permission)"


Is this not possible?

When you rename a subvolume you are renaming the folder on the actual hard disk. If you get a 1017 error, then Windows would not let the folder name be changed by Retrospect.
