I've just started using Scanner on two 5-bay eSATA/USB3 drive enclosures I inherited. They're great, but it can be a little hard to match up the drive model numbers displayed by Scanner with the drive letters and names in Windows Explorer. Fortunately, I happened to notice that it's possible to find out letter used for a particular drive by checking the Drive Details for that drive (the drive letter is shown a few lines down from the top of the window). Then, by checking the drive's label in Windows Explorer, it's possible to go into Drive Settings in Scanner and change the drive's name. I add the drive's label and drive letter just before the model number that's the default name Scanner assigns to each drive. So, if I have 4 drives that are part of my MainStorage pool, I might change the names in Disk Settings to something like: MainStorage E: (WDC WD10EAVS-00D7B1) MainStorage F: (WDC WD10EAVS-00D7B1) MainStorage G: (WDC WD10EADS-00L5B1) MainStorage H: (WDC WD10EADS-00L5B1) This helps keep all the MainStorage drives together in the list, sorted by drive letter. I guess my next chore is to put a physical label on each drive, so I can quickly pick out one when needed. ps. I'm so impressed with Scanner I just bought a 2nd copy. Now I have it running on my server and desktop (does it ever run fast on my desktop's SSD boot drive ) Oh, and the 2nd copy was HALF PRICE! Awesome!
