Post Loss of plug in authorization key warning

I am getting a warning dialog box which reads:
Warning loss of plug-in authorization keys may occur

This system contains one or more drives formatted with NTFS which have volume names longer than 11 characters,this combination is known to corrupt some interlok plug-in authorizations,if you know which drives are authorized and they are not configured in this way ,or if you have no interlok protected plug-ins then you may continue,in order to remedy this issue before corruption can occur click yes to quit pro-tools and rename NTFS volumes to names that are 11 characters or less

Next relaunch pro-tools and this dialog should not appear.

I have tried renaming a drive by typing ntfs in windows search and getting a list of what i think were ntfs drives, then right clicked on one of the drives from the list, i renamed the drive to a shorter version , restarted the computer & tried to launch the program related to the renamed drive, windows couldnot find the file, obviously this did not work.

I would be greatful if someone could explain how to locate these drives and then rename them.

  • Open "My Computer".
  • For any drive listed that is named with more than 11 characters (spaces count), right click the drive and select "rename"
  • type a name that is less than 11 characters, including spaces, and hit return/enter

Default Re: Loss of plug in authorization key warning

An external hard drive seems to have caused the problem resulting in the "Loss of plug in authorization key warning." I had never plugged in my Seagate external hard drive into this PC before, and the plug in warning had never appeared before. When I ejected and removed the external hard drive, the error did not appear anymore. Also, I did not rename any drivers.
