Topic: [closed] Disk Labeling Feature

Under "Device", why not include a link and/or reference to a guide about the features of various disk labels, and include the options before the user commits themselves to wiping the HD by changing disk labels?

Enjoy tinkering and trying new things.


Re: [closed] Disk Labeling Feature

do you have an interesting, informative link?

Also, i think we warn the user 2 -3 times before actually performing the operation, so anyone who 'accidently' wipes his drive is fully responsible imho smile


Re: [closed] Disk Labeling Feature

One can change the partition label  by
e2label <device> <label>
or with
tune2fs <label> <device>
from command line.

Fine, but why isn't this possible to do that within gparted? May be I have not found the menu item?

To change the volume label, select the partition and choose the menu option "Partition --> Label".
