I used the commands
Code: [Select]
sudo umount /dev/sda5
and then
Code: [Select]
sudo e2labl /dev/sda5 data
for change a partition label on my HD.
Then i mounted and used this partition without reboot (the label changed only after a reboot), is this safe or dangerous? i have very important data on this partition... thank you.
