NAME

GNU Parted - a partition manipulation program 

SYNOPSIS

parted[options] [device [command [options...]...]] 

DESCRIPTION

partedis a program to manipulate disk partitions. It supports multiple partitiontable formats, including MS-DOS and GPT. It is useful for creating space fornew operating systems, reorganising disk usage, and copying data to new harddisks.

This manual page documents parted briefly. Complete documentation isdistributed with the package in GNU Info format. 

OPTIONS

-h, --help
displays a help message
-l, --list
lists partition layout on all block devices
-m, --machine
displays machine parseable output
-s, --script
never prompts for user intervention
-v, --version
displays the version
-a alignment-type, --align alignment-type
Set alignment for newly created partitions, valid alignment types are:
none
Use the minimum alignment allowed by the disk type.
cylinder
Align partitions to cylinders.
minimal
Use minimum alignment as given by the disk topology information. This andthe opt value will use layout information provided by the disk to align thelogical partition table addresses to actual physical blocks on the disks.The min value is the minimum alignment needed to align the partition properly tophysical blocks, which avoids performance degradation.
optimal
Use optimum alignment as given by the disk topology information. Thisaligns to a multiple of the physical block size in a way that guaranteesoptimal performance.

 

COMMANDS

[device]
The block device to be used. When none is given, parted will use thefirst block device it finds.
[command [options]]
Specifies the command to be executed. If no command is given,partedwill present a command prompt. Possible commands are:
help [command]
Print general help, or help on command if specified.
align-check type partition
Check if partition satisfies the alignment constraint of type.type must be "minimal" or "optimal".
mklabel label-type
Create a new disklabel (partition table) of label-type. label-typeshould be one of "aix", "amiga", "bsd", "dvh", "gpt", "loop", "mac", "msdos","pc98", or "sun".
mkpart part-type [fs-type] start end
Make a part-type partition for filesystem fs-type (if specified),beginning at start and ending at end (by default in megabytes).part-type should be one of "primary", "logical", or "extended".
name partition name
Set the name of partition to name. This option works only on Mac,PC98, and GPT disklabels. The name can be placed in quotes, if necessary.
print
Display the partition table.
quit
Exit from parted.
rescue start end
Rescue a lost partition that was located somewhere between start andend. If a partition is found, parted will ask if you want tocreate an entry for it in the partition table.
resizepart partition end
Change the end position of partition. Note that this does notmodify any filesystem present in the partition.
rm partition
Delete partition.
select device
Choose device as the current device to edit. device should usuallybe a Linux hard disk device, but it can be a partition, software raid device,or an LVM logical volume if necessary.
set partition flag state
Change the state of the flag on partition to state.Supported flags are: "boot", "root", "swap", "hidden", "raid", "lvm", "lba","legacy_boot", "irst", "esp" and "palo".state should be either "on" or "off".
unit unit
Set unit as the unit to use when displaying locations and sizes, and forinterpreting those given by the user when not suffixed with an explicit unit.unit can be one of "s" (sectors), "B" (bytes), "kB", "MB", "MiB", "GB","GiB", "TB", "TiB", "%" (percentage of device size), "cyl" (cylinders), "chs"(cylinders, heads, sectors), or "compact" (megabytes for input, and ahuman-friendly form for output).
toggle partition flag
Toggle the state of flag on partition.
version
Display version information and a copyright message.
