Recommended partition utility for complication projects?


Hey there

I’m curious. Can anyone here recommend a Linux native partition utility which can handle complicated projects – and can resize NTFS partitions - with great ease? It doesn’t necessarily need to be “easy” to use, but it must be able to do the actual task with little fault.

Thanks.

Only NTFSresize can resize a ntfs partition, which comes with Knoppix LiveCD.

There is no such thing.
Linux doesn't work that way. Lots of small things that do what they do well, rather thab one humungous "do-it-all".
As mentioned, ntfsresize is excellent, but won't do everything with partitions.
You'll need to use the right tool for the job - whatever that happens to be.

There are several easy to use (mostly graphical) freely available partitioners for Linux. These are QTParted, GParted, Mandriva's Diskdrake, SUSE's Yast and IBM's EVMS. They can handle NTFS (all of them use the already mentioned, excellent ntfsresize). Usually they can also manage non-destructively FAT, ext2, ext3, reiserfs, xfs, jfs and swap partitions.
