GParted is a free, open source partition editor that will help you to manage your disk partitions using a powerful graphic interface.
You can use it to create, delete, resize, move, check, copy partitions without losing your data. Gparted is also an acronym for "GNOME Partition Editor" (according to the project manager GNOME PARTition EDitor - you can also think of GParted as Graphical Partition Editor), and it is one of the default partition managers included in GNOME. Since it was designed to run from an external device and offers support to lots of different file systems, you can use it to perform multiple partition related tasks to various operating systems.
Note: We recommend you to check the FAQ section and its Help section. There is also a book on Amazon written by Curtis Gedak (project manager and main developer) which contains everything you need to know about GParted.
