GParted is the Gnome Partition Editor application. The purpose of GParted is to allow users to take a hard disk and change the partition organization therein, while preserving the partition contents.
Version 0.14 was released yesterday, with the ability to move, resize, check, create, and delete physical volumes under Logical Volume Management (lvm2 pv). Also included are bug fixes and language translation updates.
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.
