I still use this software even after Patrick put up what was then a controversial paywall. I'd like to see a true alternative come about but that may take more work than other people are willing to put in.

about Parted Magic Jun 2011

A must have tool for any IT tech. It works reliably and easy to use. Uses a bootable disk that works in any environment. I used on XP and no problems. Highly recommend. Plus it has other tools that are successful. Gparteded I think is virtually the same with less tools.
