We setup Services for Macintosh and NT Server 4.0 created a folder in the root directory called 'Microsfot UAM Volume'. How can we change this name? We tried to right click and rename it, but the system tells us "Access denied. Make sure the disk not full or write protected". Do we have to change the name of this folder in the registry?

Uninstalling the service (after backing up any data) then reinstalling it after a reboot would be the safest way. The other way would be to (as Admin) check out all the file permissions, security rights etc then alter them to give you access to change the name and also do a text search through all the registry keys to locate the plaintext version of the folder name and modify that also. Reset all the permissions etc and reboot. Option one is much easier and a lot safer.
