Build a robust Linux install with dozens of functions and applications designed to work on hard drives. Building Parted Magic LiveCD requires a CD burning tool to create the bootable CD with the OS and functions.

Booting into the Linux OS offers numerous commands to work on your hard drive, and includes more functions than we could list here. Users should definitely take the time to surf to the publisher's Web site to study the CD's major applications before getting started. Some instructions are included with this package, but testers recommend only experienced users tackle this OS and applications. Many of the functions are easy to use, but improperly set actions could result in damage to your file structure. As the publishers note, this version of Parted Magic uses VisParted and Parted, but version 2.2 includes the more popular Gparted, a robust tool with the capability to change drive partitions without losing data.

Still, this version of the freeware is a powerful efficient tool to help experienced users manipulate their hard drives.
