GNU Parted 1.8.1 reviewDownload
GNU Parted is a program for creating, resizing, destroying, checking and copying partitions, and the file systems on them
GNU Parted is a program for creating, resizing, destroying, checking and copying partitions, and the file systems on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganising disk usage, copying data between hard disks and disk imaging.
Supported disk labels: raw access (useful for RAID and LVM), MS-DOS partition tables, Intel GPT partition tables, MIPS partition tables, PC98 partition tables, Sun and BSD disk labels and Macintosh partition maps.
For ext2, ext3 and reiserfs: the start of the partition must stay fixed.
For ext2, ext3: the partition you copy to must be bigger or exactly the same size as the partition you copy from.
For ext2 and ext3: the checking is limited to ensuring the resize and copy commands will be ok.
For fat: the size of the new partition after resizing or copying is restricted by the cluster size. Parted can shrink the cluster size, so you can always shrink your partition. However, if you can't use FAT32 for some reason, you may not be able to grow your partition.
Parted supports both FAT16 and FAT32. Parted can convert file systems between FAT16 and FAT32, if necessary.
Reiserfs support is enabled if you install libreiserfs.
