OAOD (GParted)

Application: GParted

What it is:

GParted (abbreviated as GPT) is a GTK+ frontend to GNU Parted and the
official GNOME Partition Editor application.

It is used for creating, deleting, resizing, moving, checking and
copying partitions, and the file systems on them. Reorganizing disk
usage, copying data residing on hard disks and mirroring one partition
with another (disk imaging).

Extra to know:

It uses libparted to detect and manipulate devices and partition
tables while several (optional) file system tools provide support for
file systems not included in libparted. These optional packages will
be detected at runtime and do not require a rebuild of GParted.

GParted is written in C++ and uses gtkmm to interface with GTK+. The
general approach is to keep the GUI as simple as possible and in
conformity with the Human interface guidelines.[specify]

The GParted project provides a live operating system including GParted
which can be written to a Live CD, a Live USB and other media. The
operating system is based on Debian GNU/Linux. GParted is also
available on other GNU/Linux live CDs, including recent versions of
Knoppix and Parted Magic.


GParted supports the following operations on file systems

btrfs, ext2, ext3, ext4, Extended, FAT16, FAT32, HFS, HFS+, JFS, swap,
NTFS, Reiser4, ReiserFS, UFS, XFS, ZFS, GParted does not support
logical volume management (LVM) at present.
