I changed partition label and i used this without reboot... safe or dangerous?


I used the commands
Code:
sudo umount /dev/sda5
and then
Code:
sudo e2labl /dev/sda5 data
for change a partition label on my HD.
Then i mounted and used this partition without reboot (the label changed only after a reboot), is this safe or dangerous? i have very important data on this partition... thank you.

Rule of thumb: Only reboot for kernel updates or hardware upgrades.

Hardware upgrades like...? Partition label is not related to hardware (my hd)?

Sorry for not being specific. Short answer: You'll be fine.



I actually meant opening the box and replacing some parts.
