gparted Gnome partition editor for manipulating disk partitions.

gparted [device]...

The gparted application is the GNOME partition editor for creating, reorganizing, and deleting disk partitions.

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 partition.

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, delete, resize, move, check, label, copy, and paste.

More documentation can be found in the application help manual, and online at:

You can run gparted from a command line and specify one or more disk devices.

For example, to start gparted with the devices /dev/sda and /dev/sdc you would use the following command:

gparted /dev/sda /dev/sdc

Editing partitions has the potential to cause LOSS of DATA.

The gparted application is designed to enable you to edit partitions while reducing the risk of data loss. The application is carefully tested and is used
by the GParted project team. However, loss of data might occur due to software bugs, hardware problems, or power failure.

You can help to reduce the risk of data loss by not mounting or unmounting partitions outside of the gparted application while gparted is running.

You are advised to BACKUP your DATA before using the gparted application.
