E2LABEL(8)                                                          E2LABEL(8)

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

       e2label device [ new-label ]

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

       If the optional argument new-label is not present, e2label will simply display the current filesystem label.

       If  the  optional  argument  new-label  is present, then e2label will set the filesystem label to be new-label.
       Ext2 filesystem labels can be at most 16 characters long; if new-label is longer than  16  characters,  e2label
       will truncate it and print a warning message.

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