GParted - free open source partition manager

Posted by ClifNotes, Aug 2008, permalink Disk Tools

 

Gparted is a great solution for people (mainly geeks) to resize and manage their hard disk partitions. I recently downloaded the Live CD version of this program then I used the IsoBurner program to burn the boot CD. After a test run, it booted up quickly with only a setting or two that needed set.

Quote from the website

GParted is the Gnome Partition Editor application. Before attempting to use it, here is some basic background information.

A hard disk is usually subdivided into one or more partitions. These partitions are normally not re-sizable (making one smaller and the adjacent one larger). The purpose of GParted is to allow the individual to take a hard disk and change the partition organization therein, while preserving the partition contents.

GParted is an industrial-strength package for creating, destroying, resizing, moving, checking and copying partitions, and the file systems on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, copying data residing on hard disks and mirroring one partition with another (disk imaging).
