GParted

GParted

GParted (Gnome Partition Editor) is the GNOME Partition Editor application.

GParted is an industrial-strength package for creating, destroying, resizing, moving, checking and copying partitions, and the filesystems on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, copying data residing on hard disks and mirroring one partition with another (disk imaging).

It uses libparted to detect and manipulate devices and partitiontables while several (optional) filesystem tools provide support for filesystems not included in libparted.

There are also Live CD and Live USB versions available, based on Gentoo Catalyst and built on the latest 2.6 Linux kernel. GParted is also available on other Linux live CDs, including recent versions of Knoppix.
