A volume label is not a must attribute in Windows, but it is often very useful to set a label for each partition on your computer. With a volume label, you can easily realize the function of every partition. For example, you may label C drive as "system partition" so that you know that the Windows system is installed on this partition. You can label a partition as "documents" if all documents are stored on this partition.
