Renaming a volume causes havoc


Recommended Posts

Steps to reproduce this:

1. Start downloading a torrent to a disk with uTorrent Mac (I download to an external USB drive)

2. On the desktop, rename the disk.

The result?

uTorrent can't find where the files are, and renaming the disk back doesn't work. Other apps don't suffer from this problem because AFAIK they don't track the location of files by the path, but instead by the device, so renaming it doesn't matter.

The download fails, and uTorrent seems to copy files to the folder /Volumes/Old_Disk_Name
