GPT fdisk

GPT fdisk aka gdisk by Roderick W. Smith,

This software is intended as a somewhat fdisk-workalike program for GPT-partitioned disks. Specific advantages of gdisk, cgdisk and sgdisk include

  • Edit GUID partition table GPT definitions in Linux, FreeBSD, MacOS X, or Windows
  • Convert MBR to GPT or back without data loss
  • Convert BSD disklabels to GPT without data loss
  • Create hybrid MBR, which permits GPT-unaware OSes to access up to three GPT partitions on the disk
  • Repair damaged GPT data structures
  • The ability to specify sector-exact partition sizes
  • Clear identification of the number of unallocated sectors on a disk
