These long strings of letters and numbers are what's called a UUID - Universally Unique Identifier. So changing the
LABEL as one commenter above mentioned most likely won't solve this particular problem. You can see the UUID for mounted devices using the
blkid command from a terminal window. In fact you can also see the
LABEL for each device too:
/dev/sda1: LABEL="SYSTEM_DRV" UUID="20BF9FE3BE8FC134" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sda2: LABEL="Windows7_OS" UUID="5CF293BFE1121C32" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sda3: LABEL="Lenovo_Recovery" UUID="B43456A123456C54" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sda5: UUID="4835b90f-1234-8321-9aca-fbcf1234123f" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sda6: UUID="av4XVa-12DA-5Vpm-0fGR-dsUd-aTtD-fG12LB" TYPE="LVM2_member"
You can create a Unix links to this directory instead, which will probably end up being the easiest thing to do here.
$ sudo ln -s /media/2ad496774-3eb8-47bb-2bf5e-788f8eb89e54 /media/storageDrive1
This link is essentially a shortcut to the physical path.
On some implementations of the mounting of devices under the directory
/media, I've seen that certain ones will actually use the
LABEL if it's set. So you might want to still try that, but it's highly dependent on which distro of Linux you're using. The link (
ln) method I suggested will work in all scenarios.
