KDE Partition Manager is a disk partitioning application for the KDE desktop environment. It was first released for KDE 4.1. Although it makes use of core components from the K Desktop Environment, it is released independently of the central KDE release cycle.
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, reorganizing disk usage, copying data residing on hard disks and mirroring one partition with another (disk imaging). Additionally, KDE Partition Manager can back up file systems to files and restore such backups.
KDE Partition Manager is a standalone application to be launched from a desktop environment's start menu, a KPart that integrates with operating system installers and a KControl module available from within KDE's systemsettings application.
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 KDE Partition Manager.
As is the case with most KDE applications, KDE Partition Manager is written in the C++ programming language and uses the Qt GUI toolkit. Released under the GNU General Public License, KDE Partition Manager is free software.
The KDE Partition Manager project provides a live operating system including KDE Partition Manager which can be written to a Live CD, a Live USB and other media. The operating system is based on the OpenSUSE Linux distribution.
