The volume tag is a mixup of partitioning questions and audio questions.
Could someone sort it out? (FYI it's the same mistake done by Polish Windows translators: translating "volume manager" like it had something to do with sound).
This does not merge them as there are some logical and partitioning questions. For those the community will need to check out the existing questions tagged volume and retag them as appropriate.
While you're at it, look at the body of the question and do some fixes there. The extra time you spend cleaning up the body will hopefully slow down any potential flooding of the site.
You can't have a single question about volume, volume will always be interpreted as ambiguous even when you do keep the tag and write as much in the information of the tag as you want. In other words, it does not solve the problem that we are having now; we don't want ambiguous use of volume.
We have to find two tags that better fit the purpose, one of them should be logical-drive. People that don't know about it will type
volume and wonder why this tag comes up; then they read a short description and they will know that logical-drive is what they want. The definition can be extracted from a online dictionary like Webopedia, which explains this term very well:
A part of a physical disk drive that has been partitioned and allocated as an independent unit, and functions as a separate drive altogether. For example, one physical drive can be partitioned into drives
H:, each representing a separate logical drive but all still part of the one physical drive.
Using the logical drive hierarchy is one method of organizing large units of memory capacity into smaller units.
As for audio, do we actually want a tag that's called volume or audio-volume? Isn't it OK to just categorize these under audio OR sound? I don't think that the volume tags have any benefit while searching, and I think that a question that's only about the tag audio-volume can't exist.
Volume should be used for partitioning, not audio. Disk format questions are far more prevalent.
Volume also has a specific meaning on the Windows side compared to partition. So using just partition may not be an ideal solution considering GPT will see further adoption in the coming future.
Add on the fact that Linux calls their partition manager the Logical Volume Manager.
