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.
Last changelog:

9 years ago

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)

I was wondering if ext4 support is on the drawing board? Cary

The good news is that ext4 is already supported.

The bad news: Depending on the Linux distribution you use you might encounter

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=195243

with any KDE Partition Manager version currently released in binary form. The next binary release will include the fix already committed to SVN for this.

The above wasn't written with eternity in mind, apparently ;-)

Anyway, from RC1 on ext4 should work even when using patched libparteds from Ubuntu or other distributions.

It would be great if you could implement different levels of compression for the backup partition file, and then restore the partition directly from the compressed file. Besides being able to backup the boot sector disk.
The aim would be able to make backups of the operating system partition and then restore them. Everything from a Live CD of course (Like Partimage or PartClone, but with a GUI)
Thanks!

Attempted to resize an ext3 partition, and the check before resizing apparently wiped out quite a bit of my data.

Probably not an issue with the app directly, but the app probably also could have taken steps to prevent me from doing this, or warn me that it might happen.

I've disconnected the drive, and I'm researching how I might get that data back, so any help would be appreciated.

Please add kcmshell4 module to access partition manager trough kde4 system-settings.

What would you be able to do with KDE Partition Manager if it was a kcm module that you cannot do now? I fail to see the benefit.

I didn't make the original request, but I agree it would be a good idea. While it doesn't explicitly bring any new features to the application, it would certainly provide a much higher degree of integration to KDE. And the 'system' tab in seems ideal for a utility like this one. Great app by the way:)

Alright. On popular demand ;-) beta2 now features a kcm.

It's a lot less user friendly, mind you, because kcm's cannot have menus. But it's there and it's working, too ;-).

Yes, it would be a great idea! Together with KGrubEditor in KDE 4.3 they will improve administration capabilities a lot! And you could take advantage of KPolicyKit too!

Hi,

In the INSTALL file, it is said :

to build the sources:
untar it
mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=''
make
sudo make install

And if I'm in the build directory, I get this error :

[daax@localhost build]$ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX='/tmp'
CMake Error: The source directory "/home/daax/Bureau/partitionmanager-1.0.0-BETA1/build" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.

Why create a build directory if the CMakelists.txt ins't there ?

You're executing cmake for the wrong CMakeLists.txt. Run it for the top level directory, not the src directory.
