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). 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!
