"Parted Magic is a compact and lightweight distribution of Linux to help you manage your disk. It is a live distribution that can run off a CD/DVD or a USB drive. It comes packed with several useful disk and partition management tools such as GParted and Clonezilla. Unlike a number of live distributions of Linux out there, Parted Magic has a pretty specialised approach to things.

"Take a break from the dozens of Ubuntu-Linux-based Linux distributions. Parted Magic is a live CD distribution of Linux based on Slackware. It specialises in helping users to manage the partitions on their computer.

"Parted Magic is currently at version 5.6 and ships with partitioning tools such as GParted, Clonezilla, Partimage, TestDisk, Truecrypt, G4L, SuperGrubDisk and so on. This distribution of Linux boots from the PXE and USB as well as CDs and DVDs. Parted Magic is quite compact, and currently comes in a 130MB download from here. The version reviewed is version 5.5."
