Hash: SHA1

Parted Magic 3.7

,----[ Quote ]
| 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

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.

Parted Magic 1.8 Review

| 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.
