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
       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.
