"GParted is an essential system administration tool.
Learn to use it wisely.
"Last week, you found Ten Essential Linux Admin Tools with which
to familiarize yourself. But, don't overwhelm yourself with
self-discovery of all ten, because this week you'll learn one of
those tools, GParted. It is a powerful ally to those who handle it
with wisdom and restraint and a harsh mistress to those who throw
caution to the wind.
"GParted is the Gnome Partition Editor. With it, you can create,
reorganize and delete disk partitions. Generally speaking, it
preserves the contents of those partitions but there is a potential
for loss. Its most common usage is for those who want to resize
disk partitions–a task that it performs very well."
