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


   ntfslabel [options] device [new-label]


   ntfslabel will display or change the file system label on the ntfs file
   system located on device.  It can also change the serial number of  the

   If  the  optional  argument  new-label is not present, and no option is
   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

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


   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.

   --new-serial[=ssssssssssssssss], or

          Set  a  new  serial  number  to  the device, either the argument
          value, or a random one if  no  argument  is  given.  The  serial
          number  is  a  64  bit  number,  represented  as a sixteen-digit
          hexadecimal number, used  to  identify  the  device  during  the
          mounting  process.  As  a consequence, two devices with the same
          serial number cannot be mounted at the same  time  on  the  same
          computer.  This is not the volume UUID used by Windows to locate
          files which have been moved to another volume.

          The option --new-half-serial only changes the upper part of  the
          serial  number,  keeping the lower part which is used by Windows
          unchanged.  In this case the optional argument is an eight-digit
          hexadecimal number.

   -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. The label
          and the serial number are displayed.

   -V, --version
          Show the version number, copyright and license for ntfslabel.
