GParted Live CD is a GNOME Partition Editor application. It is used for creating, destroying, resizing, moving, checking and copying partitions, and the file systems on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, copying data residing on hard disks and mirroring one partition with another (disk imaging).
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 as Graphical Toolkit. The general approach is to keep the GUI as simple as possible and in conformity with the Human Interface Guidelines.
This Live CD is a great utility for anyone who likes to try different Linux distros and often plays with their hard drive space. Think Partition Magic at a fraction of the price!
