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



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

SYNOPSIS
       ntfslabel 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  sim-
       ply 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 mes-
       sage.

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