GNOME Partition Editor for creating, reorganizing, and deleting disk partitions. It uses libparted from the parted project to detect and manipulate partition tables. Optional file system tools permit managing file systems not included in libparted.

CAUTION:   Possible thread timing issue with GParted 0.16.0
===========================================================

On April 24, 2013 we released GParted 0.16.0 to address
[Bug 697727 - Segfault in Gparted 0.15.0 when copying partition](https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=697727 "Bug 697727").
Since then we have discovered another potential issue with timing and
multiple threads. This issue appears to occur on older GNU/Linux
distributions. In fact the issue was not apparent in our testing of
GParted 0.16.0 on recent distros.

See [Bug 695279 - GParted doesn't compile on RHEL / CentOS 5.9](https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=695279 "Bug 695279").

Recommendation
--------------

Until this problem is resolved **we advise using GParted Live 0.14.1-6**.

We highly recommend that you **BACKUP your DATA** before using *any
partitioning tool*.
