GPARTED(8)			GParted Manual			    GPARTED(8)

       gparted - Gnome partition editor for manipulating disk partitions.

       gparted [device]...

       The  gparted  application  is  the GNOME partition editor for creating,
       reorganizing, and deleting disk partitions.

       A disk device can be subdivided	into  one  or  more  partitions.   The
       gparted application enables you to change the partition organization on
       a disk device while preserving the contents of the partition.

       With gparted you can accomplish the following tasks:
       - Create a partition table on a disk device.
       - Enable and disable partition flags such as boot and hidden.
       - Perform actions with partitions such as create, delete, resize, move,
       check, label, copy, and paste.

       More  documentation  can	 be  found in the application help manual, and
       online at:

       You can run gparted from a command line and specify one	or  more  disk

       For  example,  to  start gparted with the devices /dev/sda and /dev/sdc
       you would use the following command:

       gparted /dev/sda /dev/sdc

       Editing partitions has the potential to cause LOSS of DATA.

       The gparted application is designed to enable you  to  edit  partitions
       while  reducing	the  risk  of data loss.  The application is carefully
       tested and is used by the GParted project team.	However, loss of  data
       might occur due to software bugs, hardware problems, or power failure.

       You  can	 help  to  reduce  the	risk  of  data loss by not mounting or
       unmounting partitions outside of the gparted application while  gparted
       is running.

       You  are	 advised to BACKUP your DATA before using the gparted applica‚Äź
