NAME

ntfslabel - display/change the label on an ntfs file system  

SYNOPSIS

ntfslabel [options] device [new-label]  

DESCRIPTION

ntfslabel will display or change the file system label on the ntfs file system located on device.

If the optional argument new-label is not present, ntfslabel will simply display the current file system label.

If the optional argument new-label is present, then ntfslabel will set the file system label to be new-label. NTFS file system labels can be at most 128 Unicode characters long; if new-label is longer than 128 Unicode characters, ntfslabel will truncate it and print a warning message.

It is also possible to set the file system label using the -L option of mkntfs(8) during creation of the file system.  

OPTIONS

Below is a summary of all the options that ntfslabel accepts. Nearly all options have two equivalent names. The short name is preceded by - and the long name is preceded by --. Any single letter options, that don't take an argument, can be combined into a single command, e.g. -fv is equivalent to -f -v. Long named options can be abbreviated to any unique prefix of their name.
-f, --force
This will override some sensible defaults, such as not working with a mounted volume. Use this option with caution.
-h, --help
Show a list of options with a brief description of each one.
-n, --no-action
Don't actually write to disk.
-q, --quiet
Reduce the amount of output to a minimum.
-v, --verbose
Increase the amount of output that ntfslabel prints.
-V, --version
Show the version number, copyright and license for ntfslabel.
