Parted Magic Overview

Parted Magic is a ready-made solution for working with hard drive partitions based on a bootable LiveCD. The distribution includes a full-fledged operating system. The latter, in turn, in addition to managing partitions, can also configure the installed system, work with the Internet, and also perform any operations with data (delete, restore, transfer, etc.). This is one of the best solutions for partition management in a Linux environment, based on the GParted source code, but it has several differences for the better. So it contains additional features, such as label management, as well as secure data deletion. Third components are available that allow you to fully work with file systems of operating systems of the Windows family. The distribution is based on the Linux kernel and the XFCE desktop environment.

Parted Magic Features

Desktop is now XFCE and you can configure the crap of it now with GUIs and use the save session.
The NVIDIA drivers are used by default. This was a big gain moving to 64bit.
Lots of program requests that were not possible or problematic because of the 32bit system are now included. Libre Office, Wireshark, Keepassxc, VLC, etc…
This should put a smile on a lot of faces… International language support and man pages have returned. All languages ​​supported by Linux should be available. Not a cherry picking of a few European countries. Ibus is also included. You’ll see the new entry in the boot menu to get this going.
The downside… The iso is now 1.5GB. I found some old laptops and tested the bigger Parted Magic. The one with 2GB of RAM worked just fine in Live Mode. Another one with 4GB ran just fine from RAM. Even the cheapest computers made in the last 10 years can still run this.
I’m sure I made a few people mad doing this, but I also made even more happy. As always, I hope version is better than the last.
