SYNOPSIS

Gets the name of the specified volume.

SYNTAX

ByVolume

Get-ForensicVolumeName [[-VolumeName] <String>]

ByPath

Get-ForensicVolumeName -Path <String>

DESCRIPTION

The Get-ForensicVolumeName cmdlet parses the $Volume file's $VOLUME_NAME attribute to return the name of the specified volume.

By default, the cmdlet parses the $Volume file on the C:\ drive. To specify an alternate target drive, use the VolumeName parameter. To specify an exported $Volume file, use the Path parameter.

Except as noted, the cmdlets in the PowerForensics module require the permissions of a member of the Administrators group on the computer. To run them, start Windows PowerShell with the 'Run as administrator' option.
