GParted: Free HDD Partitioning Utility

April 10th, 2009 1 comment

"GParted" is short for Gnome Partition Editor. This is an industrial-strength package for creating, destroying, resizing, moving, checking, and copying partitions and the filesystems on them; it lets you do just about anything and everything with drive partitions. This is very useful for creating space for new operating systems (such as when you wish to upgrade to Vista, which occupies a great deal of space), to reorganize disk space (such as redistributing it for specific purposes such that one partition may store software, one for music, one for videos, and one for games), to copy data that resides on the hard drive, or to simply mirror one partition with another (disk imaging or cloning).


You can do everything mentioned above without losing the data on the drive.

GParted is available for download from; it is freeware, available in three different versions — binary, LiveCD, and LiveUSB, but we suggest you download the LiveCD version, since it is the most versatile — and it can be converted into a Live USB version if required.



You can right-click on a partition and click on Information to get detailed information about the partition or drive in question.
