GParted LiveCD is a Live Linux operating system built around the GNOME Partition Editor (popularly known as GParted) software, which can be used for disk partitioning tasks. The GParted application is successfully used in many Linux distributions to efficiently partition hard disk drives, solid disk drives and USB flash disks. It allows users to resize, move and copy partitions without losing any data.

Distributed as a Live CD

The GParted LiveCD Linux operating system is distributed as a Live CD ISO images, supporting the 64-bit and 32-bit (i486 and i686-PAE) architectures. It is our number one choice for disk partitioning tasks, no matter the operating system you are currently using on your PC or laptop.

Live CD boot options

The Live CD presents a GRUB-based boot menu that allows you to start the GParted LiveCD Linux operating system with the default settings (this is the recommended option for most users), boot the operating system that is currently installed on the computer’s hard disk drive, and test the machine’s physical memory. There’s also an option for advanced users who want to copy the entire live environment to RAM and eject the boot media, and one for those of you who encounter graphical issues with the default option.

How the Live CD works

Hitting Enter on the default selection will start the live environment, during which you will be able to select a different keymap (this is mostly useful for non-USB keyboards), as well as to select your preferred language (English is the default option). Finally, you will be able to choose if you want to start the X Window System and use the GParted LiveCD in graphical mode (this is the default option), override the display settings, or drop to a shell prompt.

Uses the Fluxbox window manager

If you choose the default option, you will immediately see a minimalistic desktop environment powered by the lightweight Fluxbox window manager and the GParted application. On the desktop you will find a small and fast web browser called NetSurf, a screenshot utility, a Linux terminal, as well as two utilities, one for changing the screen resolution and another one for configuring the network.

Helps you to shrink Microsoft Windows C:\ partitions

Microsoft Windows users can use GNOME Partition Editor to easily shrink or grow their C: drive, in order to create space for new operating system. In addition, it can be used to rescue data from lost partitions.
