It is also good at finding and listing the types, locations, and sizes of inadvertently-deleted partitions, both primary and logical. It gives you the information you need to manually re-create them (using fdisk, cfdisk, sfdisk, etc.).
The guessed table can also be written to a file or (if you firmly believe the guessed table is entirely correct) directly to a disk device.
Supported (guessable) filesystem or partition types:
* BeOS filesystem type. * FreeBSD/NetBSD/386BSD disklabel sub-partitioning scheme used on Intel platforms. * Linux second extended filesystem. * MS-DOS FAT12/16/32 "filesystems". * IBM OS/2 High Performance filesystem. * Linux LVM physical volumes (LVM by Heinz Mauelshagen). * Linux swap partitions (versions 0 and 1). * The Minix operating system filesystem type. * MS Windows NT/2000 filesystem. * QNX 4.x filesystem. * The Reiser filesystem (version 3.5.X, X > 11). * Sun Solaris on Intel platforms uses a sub-partitioning scheme on PC hard disks similar to the BSD disklabels. * Silicon Graphics' journalling filesystem for Linux.
Other types may be added relatively easily, as separately compiled modules.
gpart for DEBIAN ---------------- Changes made to upstream version for the Debian package: -- Install into /sbin and /usr/share/man rather than /usr/local/bin and usr/local/man (I have it install to /sbin, rather than (e.g.) /usr/sbin, because it will be necessary to have it there if you lose or inadvertently delete your /usr partition from the partition table, and want to us more»
gpart README Gpart is a small tool which tries to guess what partitions are on a PC type harddisk in case the primary partition table was damaged. Gpart works by scanning through the device (or file) given on the command line on a sector basis. Each guessing module is asked if it thinks a file system it knows about could start at a given sector. Several file system gues more»
