Windows server 2008 r2.  want to change a drive label that is incorrect without impacting my data on the drive. Was told I would have to remap the drive or it would not be usable if I did this.  I need a simple way like using diskpart commands if possible.  I understand no impact from the drive labels being wrong since it only uses the volume # and Drive Letter but it bothers me so if I can fix it would like to.

you can right-click on the drive in windows explorer, go to properties, and change the label in the top text box.  diskpart can set the label only when formatting

This helped me so much.  I started making it so complex when I saw the issue on diskpart list volume that I forgot that you can change it there. Thank you.
