Use the Label command followed by drive letter followed by name.

Example:  label c: Data

The above command changes the C: drive's label to now be Data.

c:\>diskpart
   DISKPART> list volume

 Output is:
         Volume ###  Ltr  Label
         ----------  ---  -----
        Volume 0     C   etc..
        Volume 1     D   etc...

 <look for type DVD-CD to find your drive>
 
  DISKPART>select volume 1
  DISKPART>assign letter=X
  DISKPART>exit

rikin_shah: I specified that it was 2008 core server.
the above article deals with server 2003 and 2003 has a windows interface. core server does not.
so I have a drive that is called the f drive and I need it to be renamed the e drive and I have a drive that is called the h drive and I need it to be renamed to f drive.
so using the command prompt how do I figure out what volume is what and then what is the symantec for changing the drive letter
