DISKID
Command
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 2.1, Copyright 1991 Gerald A. Monroe
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Purpose: A utility which displays, and optionally alters, the
diskette serial number and volume label on floppy disks
which have been formatted using MS-DOS Version 4.0 or
later, or a compatible disk format program.

Format: DISKID d: [/Nxxxx-xxxx] [/Llabel]

Remarks: DISKID requires MS-DOS or PC-DOS Version 4.0 or later.
It works only with floppy diskettes and other types of
removable media. It does not work on hard disk drives.


The d: parameter is required. It represents the drive where the
the diskette is located.

The /Nxxxx-xxxx parameter is optional. You can use it to change the
diskette serial number to the string represented by "xxxx-xxxx".
The digits represented by "x" must be valid hexadecimal (base 16)
digits within the range 0-9 or A-F.

If you do not specify a /N parameter, the diskette serial number
is not altered.

The /Llabel parameter is optional. You can use it to change the
diskette volume label to the text string represented by "label."
Strings longer than 11 characters will be truncated. To remove a
volume label, use the /L parameter alone or enter this parameter: /L/

If you do not specify a /L parameter, the volume label is not
altered.

DISKID does not work on diskettes which were formatted by a version
of DOS prior to Version 4.0.
