Linux 2.6 - man page for ntfslabel (linux section 8)

NTFSLABEL(8)									     NTFSLABEL(8)

       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

       If the optional argument new-label is not present, ntfslabel will simply display the  cur-
       rent 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.

       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 com-
       mand, 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 vol-
	      ume.  Use this option with caution.

       -h, --help
	      Show a list of options with a brief description of each one.

       -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.

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