hard disk detected as Flash'ka

I have a WD 1 TB hard disk and on my computer it is detected as Flash'ka instead of showing the WD logo. Is this due to a virus?

Does not look like something a virus would do. You can run malwarebytes if you think your machine is infected. If it does not find anything you can rename your drive to whatever you want. Also can create a new logo with the autorun.inf.

are you able to provide more information on where it's detected as 'flashKA', where do you expect to see the WD logo?

Right click on the drive and select rename and that should allow you create any name you want.

I think someone at shop made a trick over this drive or used it short time. You need simply change the volume label.
And the WD logo is shown when you have WD software on this drive.
Rename the drive - right click on it - properties - in name field type whatever name you need.

I've deleted some un-useful files, most of it is filled with windows7 image backup which consumes almost 50% of the drive
and you could change the drive name?
