VOLUME() Establishes a volume label for a floppy or hard disk Syntax VOLUME(<cDiskName>) --> lEstablished Argument <cDiskName> Designates a name to use on a new volume label. A drive designation is allowed; path designation and wildcards are not. Returns VOLUME() returns .T. when the new volume entry is created. Description DOS provides a volume label as a disk identifier. With the VOLUME() function you can establish this label. There is never more than one label per floppy or hard disk. A volume label can be up to 11 characters long, but when you use a period (.) it must always follow the eighth character. You can query the volume label with FILESEEK(), since the value 8 is assigned as the volume attribute. Notes . A new volume label is always created in the root directory. . The function acknowledges the CSETSAFETY() setting and, if necessary, does not overwrite an existing label. Examples . Establish a volume label for A: drive: . Query the A: drive volume label: ? FILESEEK("A:\*.*", 8) // Based on example 1 "VOLO815"
