KDE Partition Manager is a disk partitioning application originally written by Volker Lanz for the KDE Platform. It was first released for KDE SC 4.1 and is released independently of the central KDE release cycle. After the death of Volker Lanz in April 2014, Andrius Štikonas continued the development and took over as the maintainer.
It is used for creating, deleting, resizing, moving, checking and copying partitions, and the s on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, copying data residing on hard disks and mirroring one partition with another (disk imaging). Additionally, KDE Partition Manager can back up file systems to files and restore such backups.
It uses util-linux to detect and manipulate devices and partition tables while several (optional) file system tools provide support for manipulating file systems. These optional packages will be detected at runtime and do not require a rebuild of KDE Partition Manager.
