Vol

Index

Displays a disk's volume label and serial number.

Syntax:

VOL [drive:]

Notes:

For hard disks and ZIP drives, VOL displays both volume label and serial number.
For floppy disks and CD-ROMs, VOL displays the volume label only.

The volume label and serial number pertain to the disk, not the drive. Of course, with hard disks this amounts to pretty much the same thing.

The volume label can be changed using the LABEL command.

Examples:

To display the volume name and number of the e:


C:\WINDOWS>VOL E:

Volume in drive E is GRAPHICS
Volume Serial Number is 2F16-19D2

C:\WINDOWS>_
 

If there is no volume label, VOL displays:


C:\WINDOWS>VOL A:

 Volume in drive A has no label

C:\WINDOWS>_
 

File Details:
