Nighmare from changing MicroSD Card Volume Names!

So last night, the MicroSD card that contains my library became corrupted. Looking into it, I found my only option was to reformat it.

I thought I'd be fine because I had backed up my MoonReader bookmarks, notes, etc. I thought I could just reload my books from Calibre, restore my settings from the backup on Google Drive and I'd be ready to start reading again.

One big problem: The volume name of the MicroSD card was 3453-5598. When I reformatted it, it's name was changed to 342G-CCSD. Seemingly, these names are assigned at random, and at no point was any option provided to me to choose a name.

However, because the volume name changed, the data in my backup is now useless!

After loading the backup, my shelf in MoonReader is now full of "invalid" books. The title appears, but the thumbnail cover is blank and when I click on the title, I get an error message stating that the location is invalid.

It seems to me that the easiest way to fix this would be to change the name of my reformatted Volume back to 3453-5598--is there any way to do that?

To answer my own question (for anyone else who has this problem), MoonReader has a feature that lets you redirect the Volume name. This fixed my problem.
