The Disaster Recovery partition manager allows creating, changing, resizing, formatting and removing any disk partition before making any hard disk recovery actions. It uses a GUI for all actions.
As part of multi-OS image backup software utility, the KDEparted partition manager allows operating over partitions containing data from Windows 10, 7, 8, server Windows editions, Linux, Mac OS X etc.
Finally, the Disaster Recovery utility allows applying partition manager for “bare” disks without any OS. It is principal for safe hard disk recovery after replacing a drive or a whole machine.
You can create a new partition in some Windows or Linux file system format.
You can merge two partitions of same logical format to enhance storage capacity of a resulting partition.
Besides mounting and unmounting, activating a partition is a key part of partition management that allows using it.
You can not only merge partitions but also expand an existing partition by adding free disk space to it.
You can check any partition on errors and overall consistency, to avoid minor and major data flaws.
You can scratch an obsolete partition, adding its size to free disk space and for later reallocations.
Caution! When you delete a partition, you will also delete any data kept on it! To avoid data loss, always consider making a partition backup before deleting it!
You can use not only KDEParted to manage disk partitions. These are much more utilities, such as built-in partition manager Windows 10, Windows 7 or Vista, different Linux disk management tools and so on.
Most partition management software solutions require running under a main OS on a computer. This approach can be fatal if you accidentally delete a main boot record or OS partition!
Tip: Always backup your OS partition before making any actions over logical structure of your main hard drive or SSD! It is principal for using a built-in Windows partition manager, to avoid accidents.
Use the standalone Disaster Recovery utility for any disk partition management actions and for hard drive backup.
