On Windows, full file names have a distinct part which can be recognized
as the volume - e.g.
The "A:" and the "C:" are the "volume" part. For example, on my system,
put the volumes
On Mac there is (presumably) something similar.
On Unix the form of a file name is simply
i.e. there is no part which can be uniquely recognized as a "volume".
