E2LABEL(8)                (August 2021)                E2LABEL(8)

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

     SYNOPSIS
          e2label device [ volume-label ]

     DESCRIPTION
          e2label will display or change the volume label on the ext2,
          ext3, or ext4 file system 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).
