Default Another question for all you Linux gurus...

I was having problems with Ubuntu 18, so upon a recommendation I switched to Lubuntu.

Now, the problems I have are:

1. My "secondary" drive (the one I use for data storage) has been renamed to a GUID. I want to name it "THREETB" like I did before.

2. I also want to be able to create a "network directory" from my Windows 10 box to a couple of folders on my Linux box.

So I want to be able to open File Explorer on Windows, and do \\my-linux-box\shared_drive, and get to those files.

So, how do I rename my drive (without losing the data on it), and share out the drive and/or folders on that drive?
