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.
- Create partition tables (e.g., MSDOS, GPT)
- Create, delete, copy, resize, move, check, set new UUID, or label partitions
- Manipulate btrfs, ext2/3/4, f2fs, FAT16/32, hfs/hfs+, linux-swap, luks, lvm2 pv, nilfs2, NTFS, reiserfs/4, udf, ufs, and xfs file systems
- Enable and disable partition flags (e.g., boot, hidden)
- Align partitions to mebibyte (MiB) or cylinder boundaries
- Attempt data rescue from lost partitions
- Supports hardware RAID, motherboard BIOS RAID, Linux software RAID
- Supports all sector sizes (e.g., 512, 1024, 2048, 4096 byte sectors)
was able to move (towards left side free space) 2 partition swap and linux partition (move left + extend) on my dual boot lubunutu/windows easily with no problems at all, even though many sites telling that might not work. so happy.
Followed the instruction on the website : Used unetbutin to put this on a usb. Booted from usb. Was able to move partition to other side of empty partition without issue. thanks
This is a well-known software. Nothing to add on this.
Extremely useful, I use it every time I reinstall my system
1) Free 2) Simple and easy to use GUI. 3) Can partition Linux and Windows OSes Here is what I needed done and GParted did without issue. I had Windows 2000 server HDD with 12gb (OS) and 400gb(data) partitions.I wanted to resize the OS partition to 50gb by taking 48 from data partition. I was able to do it in few easy steps. I would highly recommend GParted.
