GParted instead of Partition Magic

I’ve used Partition Magic for years.  I unfortunately lost my bootable CD and have hesitated purchasing the software again.  I went to CompUSA this weekend to look into purchasing it again and was asking the rep where I could find it.  As I was asking, I just muttered, “I wish there was a free open source alternative to this.”  The rep said, “Have you heard of GParted?”  I started a little smirk.  I asked him, “Is that an open source alternative to Partition Magic?”   He said, “Yep.”  I left CompUSA, went straight home and downloaded GParted.

It is a 30 Mb ISO image and, when burned to CD, is bootable.

If you’ve used Partition Magic in the past, this is no different.

Screen shots coming soon!

  1. Oddly enough, that encourages me to shop at CompUSA.
