Purpose:Display disk volume label(s)

 

Format:VOL [d:] ...

 

d:        The drive or drives to search.

 

Usage:

 

Each disk may have a volume label, created when the disk is formatted or with the external LABEL command. Also, every disk formatted with Windows has a volume serial number.

 

The VOL command will display the volume label and, if available, the volume serial number of a disk volume. If the disk doesn't have a volume label, VOL will report that it is "unlabeled."  If you don't specify a drive, VOL displays information about the current drive:

 

[c:\] vol

Volume in drive C: is MYHARDDISK

 

If available, the volume serial number will appear after the drive label or name.

 

To display the disk labels for drives A and B

 

[c:\] vol a: b:

Volume in drive A: is unlabeled

Volume in drive B: is BACKUP_2

 

VOL will also return volume information for UNC names.
