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

SYNOPSIS
       e2label device [	volume-label ]

DESCRIPTION
       e2label	will  display or change	the volume label on the	ext2, ext3, or
       ext4 filesystem located on device.

       If the optional argument	volume-label is	not present, e2label will sim-
       ply 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, e2la-
       bel will	truncate it and	print a	warning	message.

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