Parted Magic is a bootable ISO CD image that combines the partition management features of GParted with an array of other open source system tools that enable you to test your memory (RAM), benchmark your PC, clone your hard drives, securely wipe your hard disk, copy or move drive content and more.
Parted Magic runs on a Linux operating system directly from the CD, allowing you to access your hard drive content and salvage your data, even if your (Windows) operating system is left unbootable. Once booted, Parted Magic provides an easy to use desktop environment that lets you choose the tools you want to use, no command-line knowledge required.
Parted Magic supports the following file systems: btrfs, ext2, ext3, ext4, fat16, fat32, hfs, hfs+, jfs, linux-swap, ntfs, reiserfs, reiser4, and xfs.
