GParted LiveCD

CNET Editors' review

This heavy-duty partition tool isn't for novices or the faint of heart, but experienced users will find this tool invaluable. This ISO file is a suite of applications you burn to disk and use to boot your system. The program uses a mixture of command line menus and GUI-based applications. No matter your experience level, we recommend finding and studying the online documentation. This isn't the kind of program where most users should try and wing it.

At boot, you choose from a selection of options to run GParted or boot from other partitions. You may need to choose one of the special options depending on your hardware. GParted itself is a complex collection of menus and functions to perform almost any partition function. The program is part of a simple GUI. You can easily check, create, copy, resize, remove, or delete partitions on most hard-drive models. You can easily destroy your operating system, so deliberation is the key to safety. The documentation presents the easiest method to each task. Most are accomplished in a few easy steps.

As with any program this complex, your experience depends on your knowledge and hardware. Some users will find GParted works perfectly and easily, and others will give up after the first attempt. We recommend this very useful freeware tool for experienced users.

    "Didn't work for me either"

    March 31, 2013  |   By PlasticDruid

    Version: GParted LiveCD 0.15.0-1

    Pros

    Free. Reputedly very powerful and easy to use (I can't tell).

    Cons

    I followed the instructions very carefully, twice. The resulting .iso image CDs would not boot on any of my 4 computers. I have had no trouble with bootable .iso CDs in the past which strongly suggests this software is the problem. To those who insist that the software is not at fault, Google it and look at how many people out there are reporting the same problem.

    Summary

    By all means try it, but use a CD-RW. That way you won't waste a CD-R if it doesn't work. Good luck.
