The Parted Magic OS employs core programs of GParted and Parted to handle partitioning tasks with ease, while featuring other useful software (e.g. Partimage, TestDisk, Truecrypt, Clonezilla, G4L, SuperGrubDisk, ddrescue, etc…) and an excellent set of info to benefit the user. An extensive collection of file system tools are also included, as Parted Magic supports the following: btrfs, ext2, ext3, ext4, fat16, fat32, hfs, hfs+, jfs, linux-swap, ntfs, reiserfs, and xfs. Parted Magic requires at least a i586 processor and 312MB of RAM to operate or 175MB in “Live” mode.

- Gparted is excellent. No need for fancy/expensive re-partitioning tools. It'll do the job no matter what OS you're using.Mar 24, 2012
- For a very user-friendly imaging solution, I like RedoBackup. Feature wise it may not hang with Parted Magic, but practically anyone could use it without issue.Mar 24, 2012
- I used Gparted yesterday to move and increase the size of a partition. Once the operations were complete the partition was completely unusable. A quick format later and it was usable again - minus my data.
You should always make a backup of your data before using any software like this, (which I did). The lesson to learn here is that if it can go wrong, it will go wrong.Apr 16, 2013
