External SSD changing name.

I am thoroughly frustrated and need some help. I have a MacBook M1, a Sandisk 1TB external SSD and I use Adobe Lightroom Classic. I named my SSD - 

SANDISK SSD 1TB #1. 

 
After I updated my MacBook to Monterey about a year ago and also updated Lightroom Classic to 12.4 I have this issue. So I open up my laptop so Backblaze can backup everything and Backblaze says it can’t find my SSD. When I right click on the SSD icon and select Get Info, the name and extension says, Sansdisk SSD 1 TB #11. It for some reason has added a 1 to the original name. Instead of #1 it says #11. 
 
To correct this, I leave my SSD connected and restart my Mac, log back in and then the name corrects itself back to my original name of SANDISK SSD 1 TB #1 and everything works fine until the laptop goes to sleep then it reverts back to SANDISK SSD 1 TB #11. Even when I have not edited in a week or so and I connect my SSD and go to open Lightroom Classic, it does the same thing and Lightroom says it can’t find my photos. I restart the Mac and then everything is fine.
 
How do I correct this annoying issue? I have went into the name and extention for my SSD and changed the #11 back to #1 and it does not like that either. Only restarting temporarily corrects the issue.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 
James West.
