A volume is basically any portion of a drive that has been allocated to a single partition. C: and D: can be on the same disk and each would be considered a "Volume".

A mount point is basically a file system redirect that allows one Volume to point a directory to a different Volume. This allows you to store data that acts as if it is part of one volume on a different volume.

The mount point would be the windows or unix name that is used to reference a storage device.

The volume would be the actual storage underneath the mount point.

A mount point is also a storage volume but it is mounted in the operating system as a directory so the user doesn't have the perception that he or she is really using another storage volume.
