Diskpart script help

I have a txt file that has this

select disk 0
clean

create partition primary size=100
select partition 1
format quick fs=ntfs label="System"
assign letter=S

active

create partition primary
select partition 2
format quick fs=ntfs label="Windows"
assign letter=W
list volume
exit

And to run this as a script

i use diskpart.exe /s WipeC.txt

BUT i am booting of a usb with a label name "images"

This has only happen one time but my script wiped my usb because it was disk 0.

Is there a way to check if disk 0 is label "images" if it is DON'T wipe it.

A "DISK" does not have a label, a partition has a label.  so that is no use and diskpart does not know about labels.

You could run a diskpart script that just listed out the DISKs to a text file and then parse the textfile to decide what disk to wipe.
