GParted for Windows is a full form of the Gnome Partition Editor(GParted) application. GParted for Windows is an industrial-strength package for creating, destroying, resizing, moving, checking and copying partitions, and the file systems on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, copying data residing on hard disks and mirroring one partition with another (disk imaging).
A hard disk is usually subdivided into one or more partitions. These partitions are normally not re-sizable (making one smaller and the adjacent one larger). The purpose of this application is to allow the individual to take a hard disk and change the partition organization therein while preserving the partition contents.
This application uses GNU libparted to detect and manipulate devices and partition tables. Several (optional) file system tools provide support for file systems not included in libparted. Gnome partition editor optional packages will be detected at runtime and do not require a rebuild this application.
This application is written in C++ and uses graphically managing your disk partitions for its Graphical User Interface (GUI). The general approach is to keep the Graphical User Interface as simple as possible. Every attempt was made to conform to the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines.
