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


       e2label device [ volume-label ]


       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.  For
       other file systems that support online label manipulation and  are  mounted  e2label  will
       work as well, but it will not attempt to truncate the volume-label at all.

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