While we are looking at disks I’ll add this function to the mix

function set-volumelabel {            
[CmdletBinding()]            
param (            
 [string]$computer=".",            
             
 [parameter(Mandatory=$true)]            
 [string]            
 [ValidatePattern("^[A-Z]{1}:{1}`$")]            
 $drive,            
             
 [parameter(Mandatory=$true)]            
 [string]$newname            
              
)            
            
Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Volume -ComputerName $computer -Filter "DriveLetter='$drive'"  |            
Set-WmiInstance -Arguments @{Label=$newname}            
}

Its job is to set the volume label. Give it a drive and a new name as parameters. The same pair of Get-WmiObject and Set-WmiInstance work their magic again to make the change
