KDE Partition Manager is a utility program to help you manage the disk devices, partitions and file systems on your computer. It allows you to easily create, copy, move, delete, resize without losing data, backup and restore partitions.

KDE Partition Manager supports a large number of file systems, including ext2/3/4, reiserfs, NTFS, FAT16/32, jfs, xfs and more.

It makes use of external programs to get its job done, so you might have to install additional software (preferably packages from your distribution) to make use of all features and get full support for all file systems.

KDE Partition Manager is also available as a bootable Live CD.

Follow development and have a look at some preview screenshots of the upcoming feature release on http://blog.volker-lanz.de.



Make sure available and used capacity are not printed in a partition's properties dialog if they are not known

Make sure fsck.msdos does not want to modify a file system when it is being called to read the file system usage

Warn the user when trying to overwrite an existing partition with another or an image file

Clear the clipboard if undoing an operation deleted the partition that was in it

Keep the current UUID when resizing a swap partition

Fix the build by explicitly linking the partition manager executable against the KDE libs it uses

Do not allow pasting a source partition on a bigger target partition when the source partition's file system cannot be grown to fill the target partition


* Copy a file system's UUID to the copied file system when creating a file system from another one.

* Implement a workaround for a libparted bug that makes it sometimes fail to commit changes to the OS in versions earlier than 2.2.

* Update the partition's file system and re-check for constraints if the partition's role is changed in the "Create New Partition" dialog. This fixes a bug where the user was not able to grow an extended partition if he'd previously selected a file system that cannot grow beyond a certain size.

* Always use the correct icons in modified ok/cancel buttons in dialogs and message boxes

* Fix a crash when operations to create, resize and delete an extended partitions where incorrectly merged into one (bug 232092)

 RAID support?

Hi, the main missing feature IMHO is RAID support. Do you plan implementing it?

What exactly do you mean with "raid support"? What are you missing?

I don't see my /dev/md0, /dev/md1 in Devices, so I can't view partitions using RAID. I expected a special drive called RAID, or something like that, that contains all my RAID partitions.

I don't see a menu option for creating/deleting RAID sets, I suppose it currently can't be done with partitionmanager.

Partitions used by RAIDs are shown with "unknown" file system type instead of being flagged as used, or something like that. They should not be formatted until the associated RAID set is deleted.

 Round to cylinders?

 by veeall on: Feb 14 2010

In gparted theres a tickbox to 'round to cylinders' when creating and resizing partitions. Because partitionmanager doesn't have such tickbox, does it rounds to cylinders by default or not at all?

1.0.0 and 1.0.1 always align partitions to cylinder boundaries as has been the norm for MS-DOS partition tables for the last 20 years or more.

In the next feature release there will be some new feature to (optionally) account for MS Windows Vista/7's way of aligning partitions (which is optimized for 4k-sector-size hard disks).

 Fails on NTFS recognition

Great tool!
I had only one Problem:
One of my drives is partitioned like this (fdisk -l):
Disk /dev/sdb: 400.1 GB, 400088457216 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 48641 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x2748f859

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 2 48641 390700800 f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sdb5 2 48641 390700768+ 7 HPFS/NTFS

KDE Partition Manager 1.0.1 tells me sdb5 is an ext2 Partition. It's possible to mount the partition, so the table should be ok...

 Commands from console

Can I use PartitionManager from console? Where can I find a manual with the commands to be used from console?
Thank you.

In 1.0.x it doesn't have a well thought out DBUS interface that you could use from the console.

1.0.x does however expose its actions over DBUS. You can use qdbus to explore what these actions are.

1.0.x reads fat labels but doesn't let the user change them.

In the next feature release there will be support to set labels for fat volumes.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
