All you need to identify what’s in a volume (the inode number, or inode, is all that’s needed to identify any file or folder within a single volume) by index (that’s what the i probably stands for), or maybe serial (how its number is interpreted in Posix), and its attributes (which relate directly to that inode).

I look forward to your putting alternative cases.
