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. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems (works with Vista System & Data partitions), 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 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.

Parted Magic is a free partitioning tool Live CD which not only includes GParted, but also Firefox, TestDisk and many others.
