       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 devices.

       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

       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 application.
