Rescue Lost Partitions Data With GParted 0.8


Written by Andrew @

GParted 0.8

GParted is a partition manager you can use to resize, copy or move partition without losing your data.
The latest GParted 0.8, released a couple of days ago, adds an option to rescue data from lost partitions: “This new feature uses the gpart command to guess the partition table. Discovered file systems can be mounted read-only so that you can copy data to other media”. Bugs fixed in the new version include: fix paste destination partition smaller than source, prevent visual disk display area from disappearing and fix minor cylinder alignment rounding error. A complete changelog can be found HERE.

Install GParted 0.8 in Ubuntu

You can download GParted 0.8.0 .deb files below:

To be able to use the new rescue data for lost partitions feature, you also need a package called “gpart” which is available in the official Ubuntu repositories. Install it by clicking the button below:


(this will only install the gpart dependency, not GParted)

Or open a terminal and type the following:

sudo apt-get install gpart


Gparted is also available as a Live CD. The latest GParted Live 0.8.0-1 stable is based on the Debian Sid repository as of Feb 17, 2011 and you can download it from the GParted website.
