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

SYNOPSIS
       e2label device [ new-label ]

DESCRIPTION
       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).
