    I see a lot of recommendations for Gparted. And it makes me wonder how much those involved used the product.

    I suggest people try a resize and slide operation of a partition larger than 20GB on a range of GPT/UEFI laptops and desktops from different manufacturers. Then check it for file table errors.

    Unless you are a partition mgt and multiboot Nazi, you are unlikely to know squat about this sector.

      So what would you recommend if i want to resize a partition to the left (using Mint 19.2).

    • dragonmouth says:

      What exactly is your objection to GParted? You never make that clear in your post.

      • Remonk says:

        A few days ago i deleted my swap, moved my root to the left (ex swap area), extend the root with swap leftover, shrunk the home partition 10gb and then extended the root with that 10gb all in one go with Gparted and that worked like a charm!!

        So i do like Gparted!

  2. Jim says:

    I would like to find a utility – CLI or GUI, it doesn’t matter – that will allow me to re-create exFAT partitions *without* having to format them for data-recovery purposes.

    Parted can do this, but doesn’t support exFAT, even with the exfat packages installed.

    Any ideas?

    QTParted on Sourceforge hasn’t been updated since 2011. Hardly “still under development”! Worse, there was no development between 2005 and 2011. What is the point to including it here?

    I have used fdisk, cfdisk and GParted for years. While fdisk may be more versatile, I prefer GParted because of its GUI.

  5. Nick says:

    I use fdisk and almost any tool that makes my life easier.
