GNU Parted is a program that allows you to create, destroy, resize,
move, and copy disk partitions. This is useful for creating space
for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, and copying data
to new hard disks.
This package contains the binary and manual page. Further
documentation is available in parted-doc.
Parted currently supports DOS, Mac, Sun, BSD, GPT, MIPS, and PC98
partitioning formats, as well as a "loop" (raw disk) type which
allows use on RAID/LVM. It can detect and remove ASFS/AFFS/APFS,
Btrfs, ext2/3/4, FAT16/32, HFS, JFS, linux-swap, UFS, XFS, and ZFS
file systems. Parted also has the ability to create and modify file
systems of some of these types, but using it to perform file system
operations is now deprecated.
The nature of this software means that any bugs could cause massive
data loss. While there are no such bugs known at the moment, they
could exist, so please back up all important files before running
it, and do so at your own risk.
