New, Free, Graphical Partitioning Tool

The latest LangaList newsletter had the following:

2) New, Free, Graphical Partitioning Tool

Fred, This just came in Scott Spanbauer’s weekly PCWorld newsletter “Software Report” (give credit where credit is due).
http://partitionlogic.org.uk/index.html is the home of J. Andrew (Andy) McLaughlin’s website devoted to “Partition Logic.” Among it’s other features:
– FREE! (GNU general public licence)
– It can create, delete, format, defragment, resize, and move partitions and modify their attributes. It can copy entire hard disks from one to another. – It’s basically intended to duplicate the work of commercial programs such as Partition Magic, Ghost, Drive Image or BootItNG — but for FREE. – It works from a bootable floppy or CD, under it’s own operating system. – And did I mention that it’s FREE?

I fear for the site’s survival — it might get hit with the dreaded “Langa effect.” —Bruce Fraser

Excellent, Bruce: Looks like a nice tool! A small caveat: Note the version number, which is below “1.0” While it’s always smart to make a backup before using any partition tool, it’s especially important when the tool is young, as this one is. But it looks super so far— and a free self-contained partition tool with a graphical front end is a very nice addition to the toolbox.

I haven’t tried it, but it sounds interesting. Check it out!
