Trying to re-label my ntfs on my Ubuntu 16.04 PC


First of all hello all. This is my first question posted on this forum and I hope to make my research more timely.

I had not used Linux for several years and it has progressed so quickly. It is difficult to review old material while discovering new aspects of Linux. I am still trying to remain productive.

I easily re-labeled my ext? formatted partitions using e2label. That process did not work with my ntfs formatted partitions. I really would like an all Linux process that can be used without leaving the Linux environs. I will, of course, take anything I can get. This is a question is very important to me, I just have very little time to come up with a solution. Whatever it is.

Thanks in advance.

Bob (aka 3bbsquared)

For NTFS, you can use ntfslabel. The NTFS partition should be unmounted first.

Have you tried ``ntfslabel`` ?

I've never used it, but it's worth looking at.

Thanks, I knew the answer would be simple. Not easy, just simple.

It depends on what you have installed at the time, but in the future you can try:

Code:
$ apropos ntfs
(for example) to see if there are any "obvious" solutions.

It only looks at what you have installed, so its use is limited, but I've found many a useful command that way.
