In some operating systems (e.g., DOS, OS/2 and Microsoft Windows)
vol is a command within the command line interpreters (shells) such as
cmd.exe. It is used to display the volume label and volume serial number on a logical drive, such as a hard disk partition or a floppy disk, if they exist.
Drive:This command-line argument specifies the drive letter of the disk for which to display the volume label and serial number.
- On Windows, the volume serial number is displayed only for disks formatted with MS-DOS version 4.0 or later.
- OS/2 allows the user to specify more than one drive. The
volcommand displays the volume labels consecutively.
[C:\]vol C: The volume label in drive C is OS/2. The Volume Serial Number is 0815:1611.
C:\Users\root>vol C: Volume in drive C is Windows Volume Serial Number is 080F-100B
In the example above, if drive C: has no volume label, "has no label" is shown instead of "is Windows".
