Review: Parted Magic 4.0  

,----[ Quote ]
| As far as actually using Parted Magic 4.0 to partition a drive, it works 
| great.  I went in, threw everything at it I could and it worked flawlessly.  
| In fact, the newer version of Gparted works a lot better than the previous 
| versions used.  It was more or less *click, click, click, done* when 
| repartitioning a drive.  Yes, it was fast!    
| And I haven't seen any failings in all the tests I've run, including 
| stability issues.  It's been rock solid.  So overall I have no complaints 
| with this version of Parted Magic.  I think it's some of the best work I've 
| seen from this developer group since it got started.  Well done guys!   


Review of Parted Magic 4.0

| Hot off the press, Parted Magic 4.0 has been released. In short, it's a 
| lightweight Linux live CD with a firm focus on partitioning drives. From its 
| web site, "The Parted Magic OS employs core programs of GParted and Parted to 
| handle partitioning tasks with ease, while featuring other useful programs 
| (e.g. Partition Image, TestDisk, fdisk, sfdisk, dd, and ddrescue) and an 
| excellent set of documentation to benefit the user. An extensive collection 
| of file system tools are also included."

Parted Magic 3.7

| Yet another Slackware-based Linux distro! Parted Magic, aka “The Linux CD
| Partitioning Tool”, is a Live OS packed with recovery tools that you can use
| to troubleshoot your system.
| [...]
| Parted Magic is a lightweight OS that can run as a Live CD/USB. It includes
| many recovery utilities that can help repairing damaged systems. Additional
| software tools are available as downloadable modules. It would have been nice
| to have some of these modules (e.g. ClamAV, F-PROT) inside the OS, but
| hopefully these features will be added soon.

Review: Parted Magic 3.3

| One of the things I've found that new users tend to have trouble with is disk
| partitioning.  Even some professional computer repairman have issues with it.
| That's why I was glad the day I stumbled onto Gparted, a free open source
| disk partition editing program that allows you to make changes to the
| partitions on your hard drive.  But that had its issues, the biggest being
| that you had to fire up a full blown livecd in order to gain access to it.
| From a practical standpoint, that really didn't work too well.
| [...]
| For such a simple distribution with a simplistic purpose, it's been one of
| the better distributions I've come across for general maintenance to your
| computer's hard drive, and it's partitions. I'm quite impressed with it, and
| would recommend it to anyone who needs to edit some partitions on their
| computer, change them, remove them, etc.

| All in all this is a great tool to have in your toolbox for creating
| partitions on any PC. It comes with a wide assortment of utilities that
| worked well in all my tests.
