Parted Magic is a small live CD/USB/PXE with its elemental purpose being to partition hard drives. Although GParted and Parted are the main programs, the CD/USB also offers other applications, such as Partition Image, TestDisk, fdisk, sfdisk, dd, and ddrescue. The project’s latest release updates the desktop to Xfce 4.14 from 4.12. “This version of Parted Magic comes with a huge number of package updates and improvements. Most notable is the upgrade to Xfce 4.14. I spent a lot of time tweaking the general look and feel. It looks significantly better than the last version. The boot menus have some changes so it’s easier for people the find the more common booting work-a-arounds. Fcitx has been added to further improve input support. A menu allows you choose between Fcitx and Ibus. The old PXE version download has been discontinued. I highly suggest using the new method to boot Parted Magic via PXE: https://partedmagic.com/pxe/. If you really need to use the old slow PXE method you can build it with the included script: boot/pxelinux/pm2pxe.sh.” The project’s news page has more information. Parted Magic can be purchased from the distribution’s online store for US$11.
