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 partitions.

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 or delete
    • resize or move
    • check
    • label
    • copy and paste

Gparted is a GTK (Gnome)-based partition manager that can also be used with KDE.

  • This utility works best as a LiveCD. Download the Gparted .ISO image here. Burn the .ISO image to CD. Use the GParted LiveCD as your partition manager.
  • You can also install the package:
