Situation: A person wants to take a typical store purchased PC with (Windows VISTA) and resize the C: partition making room for a new ntfs E: partition. The purpose of this move is to keep primarily the OS and program files on the C: partition thus making it easy to make backup images of the C: partition to DVD(s). The large files (movies, music, etc.) will be kept on the E: partition and will be backed up to an external hard drive. I realize that this operation is relatively easy to perform with GParted. I am wondering about user's experiences with GParted's "reliability" in performing these actions. I realize that there are always risks when working with hard drive partitions but I just want to know how significant are the risks. Also, which distro would you prefer for running Gparted (Parted Magic, Puppy Linux, etc.)? Does Gparted properly make and format nfts partitions? I have reviewed this really good Tutorial: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=240356 Thanks in Advance.
