       parted - a partition manipulation program


       parted [options] [device [command [options...]...]]


       parted  is  a program to manipulate disk partitions.  It supports multiple partition table
       formats, including MS-DOS and GPT.  It is useful for  creating  space  for  new  operating
       systems, reorganising disk usage, and copying data to new hard disks.

       This manual page documents parted briefly.  Complete documentation is distributed with the
       package in GNU Info format.


       -h, --help
              displays a help message

       -l, --list
              lists partition layout on all block devices

       -m, --machine
              displays machine parseable output

       -s, --script
              never prompts for user intervention

       -v, --version
              displays the version

       -a alignment-type, --align alignment-type
              Set alignment for newly created partitions, valid alignment types are:

              none   Use the minimum alignment allowed by the disk type.

                     Align partitions to cylinders.

                     Use minimum alignment as given by the disk topology  information.  This  and
                     the  opt value will use layout information provided by the disk to align the
                     logical partition table addresses to actual physical blocks  on  the  disks.
                     The  min  value  is  the  minimum  alignment  needed  to align the partition
                     properly to physical blocks, which avoids performance degradation.

                     Use optimum alignment as given by the disk topology information. This aligns
                     to  a  multiple  of the physical block size in a way that guarantees optimal


              The block device to be used.  When none is given, parted will use the  first  block
              device it finds.

       [command [options]]
              Specifies  the command to be executed.  If no command is given, parted will present
              a command prompt.  Possible commands are:

              help [command]
                     Print general help, or help on command if specified.

              align-check type partition
                     Check if partition satisfies the alignment constraint of type.  type must be
                     "minimal" or "optimal".

              mklabel label-type
                     Create  a  new disklabel (partition table) of label-type.  label-type should
                     be one of "aix", "amiga",  "bsd",  "dvh",  "gpt",  "loop",  "mac",  "msdos",
                     "pc98", or "sun".

              mkpart [part-type name fs-type] start end
                     Create  a  new partition. part-type may be specified only with msdos and dvh
                     partition tables, it should be one of "primary", "logical",  or  "extended".
                     name  is required for GPT partition tables and fs-type is optional.  fs-type
                     can be one of "btrfs", "ext2",  "ext3",  "ext4",  "fat16",  "fat32",  "hfs",
                     "hfs+", "linux-swap", "ntfs", "reiserfs", "udf", or "xfs".

              name partition name
                     Set  the name of partition to name. This option works only on Mac, PC98, and
                     GPT disklabels. The name can be placed in double quotes, if necessary.   And
                     depending  on the shell may need to also be wrapped in single quotes so that
                     the shell doesn't strip off the double quotes.

              print  Display the partition table.

              quit   Exit from parted.

              rescue start end
                     Rescue a lost partition that was located somewhere between  start  and  end.
                     If  a partition is found, parted will ask if you want to create an entry for
                     it in the partition table.

              resizepart partition end
                     Change the end position of partition.  Note that this does  not  modify  any
                     filesystem present in the partition.

              rm partition
                     Delete partition.

              select device
                     Choose  device  as  the  current  device to edit. device should usually be a
                     Linux hard disk device, but it can be a partition, software raid device,  or
                     an LVM logical volume if necessary.

              set partition flag state
                     Change  the  state  of the flag on partition to state.  Supported flags are:
                     "boot", "root",  "swap",  "hidden",  "raid",  "lvm",  "lba",  "legacy_boot",
                     "irst",  "msftres",  "esp",  "chromeos_kernel"  and "palo".  state should be
                     either "on" or "off".

              unit unit
                     Set unit as the unit to use when displaying locations  and  sizes,  and  for
                     interpreting  those  given  by  the  user when not suffixed with an explicit
                     unit.  unit can be one of "s" (sectors), "B"  (bytes),  "kB",  "MB",  "MiB",
                     "GB",   "GiB",   "TB",   "TiB",  "%"  (percentage  of  device  size),  "cyl"
                     (cylinders), "chs" (cylinders, heads, sectors), or "compact" (megabytes  for
                     input, and a human-friendly form for output).

              toggle partition flag
                     Toggle the state of flag on partition.
