NTFS Label

Hi All,

If you want to work on NTFS filesystems on your Linux distributions - install either ntfsprogs or ntfs-3g.

This post explains how to to rename a NTFS Label in your distro.

1. Check if you have ntfsprogs installed or not. Or else do install it.
2. Become the root or issue as sudo
sudo ntfslabel -f "your_device" "your_new_label_name"

In above bolded command: your_device may be something like /dev/sdb1
Give the label name that suits you.

Hope this helps you all.
