The basic problem is that in the GUI shows a directory name with no space but when I cd to it in the terminal, the directory name has a space in it. What would cause the names to be different?
The full story is:
I have been trying to backup my computer to a WD hard drive that I was previously using when I used Windows. When I initially mounted the hard drive it named itself "My Book". I changed the name of the mounted file to MyBook through GParted as explained on Ubuntu Wiki. I also reformatted the hard drive file system to ext3. I navigated to the media directory where it is now mounted, and the directory name was still "My Book". So I changed the name from the command line with (also according to the instructions on Ubuntu Wiki). The directory name still has a space in the terminal but not in the GUI.
I am using Ubuntu 14.04.
I ran the 2 commands requested by mikeserv.
