          gparted - GNOME Partition Editor for manipulating disk

          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 hid-
          - Perform actions with partitions such as create, delete,
          resize, move, check, label, copy, and paste.

          More documentation can be found in the application help man-
          ual, 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 appli-
          cation is carefully tested and is used by the GParted pro-
          ject team.  However, loss of data might occur due to soft-
          ware bugs, hardware problems, or power failure.

          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
