Change Volume Label of System Volume RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know how to change the volume label of the system volume using diskpart (or a sutiable command)?

    By default, it is empty when Windows Server 2008 is installed. I want to change the volume label to be "NOS".

    I can create volume labels during creation of a volume using diskpart:

    diskpart> Select Disk 1
    Create Partition Primary
    diskpart> Select Volume 2
    Format FS=NTFS Label="DAT" QUICK
    Assign Letter=D

    The problem is I can't locate a diskpart command to change any volume label. I included the output of systeminfo below.
