exfatlabel - Man Page

get or set an exFAT file system label


exfatlabel [ -V ] device [ label ]


exfatlabel reads or changes an exFAT file system label (volume name).

If label argument is present, exfatlabel sets the new volume name. Empty label ('') removes volume name. Label can be up to 15 characters. This limit is shorter if characters beyond Unicode BMP are used because internally label is stored in UTF-16.

If label argument is omitted, exfatlabel just prints current volume name.
