Converting the FileSystemObject's VolumeName Property

Windows PowerShell

Definition: Sets or returns the volume label of a drive.


Retrieve an object reference to the .NET Framework object DriveInfo for the drive you want to work with. You can then use the DriveInfo VolumeLabel property to retrieve the volume label of the drive.

$d = New-Object -typename System.IO.DriveInfo -argumentlist "C:"

You can set the volume label with the same property:

$d.VolumeLabel = "My Data Drive"
