Gnome Partition Editor
GParted is a free partition editor for graphically managing your disk partitions.
GParted is useful for tasks such as: creating space for new operating systems, restructuring disk space to separate user and operating system data, and copying partitions to enable upgrading to a larger hard disk drive.
Your hard disk drive or USB flash drive can be subdivided into one or more partitions. GParted enables you to reorganize your disk partitions while preserving the contents of these partitions. Features Create partition tables (e.g., msdos, gpt)
Perform actions with partitions such as: create or delete resize or move check label copy and paste Manipulate file systems such as: btrfs ext2 / ext3 / ext4 fat16 / fat32 hfs / hfs+ linux-swap ntfs reiserfs / reiser4 ufs xfs For specific actions supported see detailed features. Enable and disable partition flags (e.g., boot, hidden) Align partitions to mebibyte (MiB) or cylinder boundaries Attempt data rescue from lost partitions Supports hardware RAID, motherboard BIOS RAID, and Linux software RAID.
