gparted - Gnome partition editor for manipulating disk partitions.
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
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
You are advised to BACKUP your DATA before using the gparted
