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,
       e2label will truncate it and print a warning message.

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