Default How do i rename ntfs volumes?

Upon start up I got this message:

rename NTFS volumes to drive names that are 11 characters or less before installing or launching Pro Tools M-Powered.
Should you attempt to launch Pro Tools M-Powered with NTFS drives longer than 11 characters, a dialog should appear alerting you to this fact.

How do I do this? I have removable hard drives, do I rename all of them?

Pro Tools does like to put a file on every available drive, so any active drive present with Pro Tools running should be renamed to avoid potential issues.
