E2LABEL(8)                  System Manager's Manual                 E2LABEL(8)



NAME
       e2label - Change the label on an ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem

SYNOPSIS
       e2label device [ volume-label ]

DESCRIPTION
       e2label will display or change the volume label on the ext2, ext3, or
       ext4 filesystem located on device.

       If the optional argument volume-label is not present, e2label will
       simply display the current volume label.

       If the optional argument volume-label is present, then e2label will set
       the volume label to be volume-label.  Ext2 volume labels can be at most
       16 characters long; if volume-label is longer than 16 characters,
       e2label will truncate it and print a warning message.

       It is also possible to set the volume label using the -L option of
       tune2fs(8).
