    Had a quick search couldnt find this topic,


    What do you name your drives? Do you have any specific names/genres that you follow? I'm interested to know.

    I've named mine after beers of the world:

    C: Windows (Boring, I know)
    F: Furstenberg
    G: Grolsch
    H: Heinekin
    I: Ichiban

    I name my drives with whatever they are used for or a general description of what that storage device is, eg: /media/SanDisk4GB for my 4GB SanDisk SD Card, /media/USB_Linux for my USB drive with a Linux partition, /media/USB_NTFS for the same USB drive but its second partition formatted for Windows data storage, etc.

    Windows, just C: Win32 and D: Data.

    You probably meant the wild cat, a cougar, a couger is someone who gives bad oral sex. Each to their own, though I guess?

    Need to switch the order of the letters at some stage, they're a bit messy atm.. you can see where i recently tacked on two 1tb drives for direct blu-ray and hd-dvd dupes (four more 1TB drives to come next week).
