       gparted - Gnome partition editor for manipulating disk partitions.


       gparted [device]...


       The  gparted  application  is  the GNOME partition editor for creating,
       reorganizing, and deleting disk partitions.

       A disk device can be subdivided  into  one  or  more  partitions.   The
       gparted application enables you to change the partition organization on
       a disk device while preserving the contents of the partition.

       With gparted you can accomplish the following tasks:
       - Create a partition table on a disk device.
       - Enable and disable partition flags such as boot and hidden.
       - Perform actions with partitions such as create, delete, resize, move,
       check, label, copy, and paste.

       More  documentation  can  be  found in the application help manual, and
       online at:


       You can run gparted from a command line and specify one  or  more  disk

       For  example,  to  start gparted with the devices /dev/sda and /dev/sdc
       you would use the following command:

       gparted /dev/sda /dev/sdc


       Editing partitions has the potential to cause LOSS of DATA.

       The gparted application is designed to enable you  to  edit  partitions
       while  reducing  the  risk  of data loss.  The application is carefully
       tested and is used by the GParted project team.  However, loss of  data
       might  occur due to software bugs, hardware problems, or power failure.

       You can help to reduce the  risk  of  data  loss  by  not  mounting  or
       unmounting  partitions outside of the gparted application while gparted
       is running.

       You  are  advised  to  BACKUP  your  DATA  before  using  the   gparted
