DESCRIPTION

The Set-Volume cmdlet sets or changes the file system label of an existing volume.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Set the file system label

PS C:\>Set-Volume -FileSystemLabel "Test" -NewFileSystemLabel "TestData"

This example changes the file system label from test to TestData.

Example 2: Format the volume

PS C:\>Format-Volume -InputObject $PartitionObject -FileSystem NTFS -NewFileSystemLabel "TestData" -ClusterSize (8K) -ShortFileNameSupport $False

This example uses the specified Partition object as an input to format the volume on this partition with the NTFS file system, using the file system label testdata with a cluster size of 8K, and with short filename support disabled.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-DedupMode

Specifies the Data Deduplication mode to use for the volume, if Data Deduplication is enabled on this volume. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Backup
  • Disabled
  • GeneralPurpose
  • Hyper-V
  • NotAvailable
Type: DedupMode
Parameter Sets: ByObjectSetDedup, ByUniqueIdSetDedup, ByPathSetDedup, ByLabelSetDedup, ByDriveLetterSetDedup
Aliases: 
Accepted values: Disabled, GeneralPurpose, HyperV, Backup, NotAvailable

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-DriveLetter

Specifies a letter used to identify a drive or volume in the system.

Type: Char
Parameter Sets: ByDriveLetterSetLabel, ByDriveLetterSetDedup
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-FileSystemLabel

Specifies the file system label of the object. The acceptable values for this parameter include: NTFS and ReFS.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: ByLabelSetLabel, ByLabelSetDedup
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-InputObject

Specifies the input object that is used in a pipeline command.

Type: CimInstance[]

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
