|Purpose:||Display disk volume label(s)|
|Format:||VOL [d:] ...|
|d:||The drive or drives to search.|
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:
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.
