Gnome Partition Editor

If you have read about the introduction of
Gnome Partition Editor (GParted) in the previous post, you should have quite a good understanding of what it does. A new bug-fix update version of GParted 0.2.5-4 Live CD has been released.

GParted is an industrial-strength package for creating, destroying, resizing, checking and copying partitions, and the file systems on them. It allows you to take the hard disk drive and partition the drive into several partitions, at the same time, preserving the content that was written on the hard disk. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, copying data residing on hard disks and mirroring one partition with another (disk imaging).

Available as source code, you can compile them yourself. Or, you may also try the LiveCD and the LiveUSB editions, which can be downloaded below.

Note that, it is important to check out what filesystems are supported from the Feature site. For instance, some partitions, such as ext2 and ext3 cannot be moved.
