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, 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)
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.
I had to increase a Windows 7 64-bit VirtualBox VM C: drive partition from 128GB to 256 GB. GParted was fast and worked out of the box.
Great tool !
