Rescue Partitions with GParted - "GParted is a free partition editor for graphically managing your disk partitions.

With GParted you can resize, copy, and move partitions without data loss, enabling you to:
  • Grow or shrink your C: drive
  • Create space for new operating systems
  • Attempt data rescue from lost partitions"


GParted enables you to easily manage your disk partitions:
  • Create partition tables, (e.g., msdos or gpt)
  • Create, move, copy, resize, check, label, set new UUID, and delete partitions
  • Enable and disable partition flags, (e.g., boot or hidden)
  • Align partitions to mebibyte (MiB) or traditional cylinder boundaries
  • Attempt data rescue from lost partitions
GParted works with the following storage devices:
  • Hard disk drives (e.g., SATA, IDE, and SCSI)
  • Flash memory devices, such as USB memory sticks and Solid State Drives (SSD's)
  • RAID Devices (hardware RAID, motherboard BIOS RAID, and Linux software RAID)
  • All sector sizes (e.g., devices with 512, 1024, 2048, 4096 byte sectors and more)
  • GParted supports the following actions on file systems:

    [1] Copy performed using ntfsclone command.
    [2] You need kernel support for this file system if you want to grow it (or shrink if shrink is supported).
    [3] Although it's not possible to shrink an xfs file system directly, you can shrink it using GParted's copy functionality.
    [4] Native available through libparted (versions < 3.0 or versions > 3.0). For example libparted-3.1.
    [5] Copy performed using xfsdump and xfsrestore.
    [6] Requires mtools to read and write labels and UUIDs.
    [7] The blkid command from e2fsprogs v1.41+ is required for ext4 detection.
    [8] The swaplabel command from util-linux v2.18+ is required to write labels and UUIDs on linux-swap.
    [9] The blkid command from util-linux v2.18+ is required for exfat detection.
    [10] Requires btrfs-tools version released after Oct. 25, 2011 to write labels.
    [11] Requires ntfs-3g advanced release version >= 2012.1.15AR to change UUID. Thentfs-3g stable version 2012.1.15 does not yet support changing NTFS UUID.
    [12] The blkid command from util-linux v2.20+ or libparted 2.4+ is required for nilfs2 detection.
    [13] Native available through libparted < 3.0. Move performed internally by GParted for libparted >= 3.0."
