A disk editor is a computer program that allows its user to read, edit, and write raw data (at character or hexadecimal, byte-levels) on disk drives (e.g., hard disks, USB flash disks or removable media such as a floppy disks); as such, they are sometimes called sector editors, since the read/write routines built into the electronics of most disk drives require to read/write data in chunks of sectors (usually 512 bytes).
Disk partitioning or disk slicing is the creation of one or more regions on a hard disk or other secondary storage, so that an operating system can manage information in each region separately.
The GNU General Public License (GNU GPL or GPL) is a widely used free software license, which guarantees end users the freedom to run, study, share and modify the software.
GNU Parted (the name being the conjunction of the two words PARTition and EDitor) is a free partition editor, used for creating and deleting partitions.
GParted (acronym of GNOME Partition Editor) is a GTK+ front-end to GNU Parted and an official GNOME partition-editing application (alongside Disks).
GTK+ (formerly GIMP Toolkit) is a cross-platform widget toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces.
KDE is an international free software community that develops Free and Open Source based software.
KDE Partition Manager is a disk partitioning application originally written by Volker Lanz for the KDE Platform.
KNOPPIX is an operating system based on Debian designed to be run directly from a CD / DVD (Live CD) or a USB flash drive (Live USB), one of the first of its kind for any operating system.
Kubuntu is an official flavour of the Ubuntu operating system which uses the KDE Plasma Desktop instead of the GNOME desktop environment.
Linux is a family of free and open-source software operating systems built around the Linux kernel.
This is a list of utilities for performing disk partitioning.
A live CD (also live DVD, live disc, or live operating system) is a complete bootable computer installation including operating system which runs directly from a CD-ROM or similar storage device into a computer's memory, rather than loading from a hard disk drive.
MEPIS was a set of Linux distributions, distributed as Live CDs or DVDs that could be installed onto a hard disk drive.
NimbleX is a small Slackware-based Linux distribution optimized to run from a CD, USB drive or a network environment.
NTFS (New Technology File System) is a proprietary file system developed by Microsoft.
ntfsresize is a free Unix utility that non-destructively resizes the NTFS filesystem used by Windows NT 4.0, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 7, 8, and 10 typically on a hard-disk partition.
Qt ("cute") is a cross-platform application framework and widget toolkit for creating classic and embedded graphical user interfaces, and applications that run on various software and hardware platforms with little or no change in the underlying codebase, while still being a native application with native capabilities and speed.
Trinity Rescue Kit (TRK) is a free and open-source Linux distribution with a command-line interface.
