The command line option
--rename-device changes the name of a device in your SpiderOak ONE account. Basic usage is:
SpiderOakONE --device=DEVICE_NUMBER --rename-device="NEWNAME"
For example, to rename device 2 to Górecki:
SpiderOakONE --device=2 --rename-device="Górecki"
The device number is optional. If it is omitted, ONE will change the name of the device you are seated at. To see a list of all of your devices and their numbers, first run
The quotes around the new name are optional but are best practice. In particular they are needed if the new name contains spaces or other characters that would otherwise be misinterpreted by the shell.
You can rename your device almost anything, but to make future administration easier we recommend not reusing a device name that you have already used.
