Description:

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.




Changelog:

1.0.3
=====

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


1.0.2
=====

* 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)

 WOW, great work!

A really good program, extensive but still very easy to use.

An awesome new feature would be, to have a possibility to configure a compression level for the partition backup images, additionally to the sector-by-sector image creation. Then Kpartitionmanager would be immediately my new standard backup program.

 unusable for resizing

Score 50%

it is unusable for resizing (ntfs) partitions: it wants to also move them few MBs to the right: so it would 'resize' my 200 gb ntfs partition for several hours.

gparted had the same issue, but its developers introduced a 'round to cylinders' checkbox which i'd uncheck when I resized the partition.

What you describe is completely orthogonal to the file system (in your case NTFS) in use.

If you're running Vista or Windows 7 and used it to partition your hard drive, you will have partitions aligned at MiB boundaries. KDE Partition Manager 1.0.x does not support that and will align partitions the way it was the norm for 25 years.

The next feature release, 1.1, will support different aligning schemes.

 right click to format

It would be really cool If I am able to right click on a drive and format it from say dolphin. for me that is one of the features still missing in kde. Gnome already has that using the gnome-disk-utility tool as backend. Thanks for the awesome job you are doing.

I agree this would be a feature worth thinking about.

However, this is a little bit outside the scope of KDE Partition Manager itself, so it would be best to suggest this on the KDE brainstorm forum:

 Fix partition order on disk

 
 by YAFU on: Jun 8 2010

I recently formatted, resized, moved a large number of partitions on my disk with KDE Partition Manager, and everything was excellent. There was no data loss or any problem. Great!
Only happened that partitions had been disorderly, and I have not found how to order them from the program. Is it possible?
I had to do it from console with fdisk (extra functionality-experts only(x), and fix partition order (f)). It would be nice an option to do it with KDE Partition Manager.
Thanks!

There currently is no feature in KDE Partition Manager to reorder entries in the partition table.

Why did you need to do that? The order of partition table entries usually does not matter.

You're right, it is only to maintain order. I have a partition for swap and another that contains the Windows pagefile. I place these two partitions in the end of the disk, and I like that their names also correspond to the last. Creating two partitions in between of the disk, the latest partitions no longer have the largest number in their names.
Bye.

I'm afraid the 1.0.x branch cannot correctly handle those drives yet. You'll have to get the trunk version from SVN and build it yourself or wait for a 1.1 release.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
