Label command messages

If you do not specify a label when you use the label command, Windows NT displays a message in the following format:

Volume in drive A is xxxxxxxxxxx
Volume Serial Number is xxxx-xxxx
Volume label (11 characters, ENTER for none)?

The "Volume Serial Number" part of the message is not displayed if the disk has no serial number.

You can type the volume label you want or press ENTER to delete the current label. If a disk has a label and you press ENTER for none, Windows NT prompts you with the following message:

Delete current volume label (Y/N)?

Press Y to delete the label; press N to keep the label.

Limitations on volume label names

A volume label can contain as many as 32 characters for NTFS volumes and as many as 11 characters for FAT volumes and can include spaces but no tabs.

Do not use any of the following characters in a volume label:

* ? / \ | . , ; : + = [ ] ( ) < > "

Windows NT displays FAT volume labels in uppercase letters. If you enter a volume label in lower-case letters, the label command converts the letters to uppercase. NTFS volume labels retain and display the case used when the label was created.
