    Question disk tools

    Hi there,

    Is there a disk tool available for Ubuntu 9.10 which can do some small things like, disk repair, checking the disk status, disk usage and that sort of stuff. I'm just curious if there exist such software. Who can tell it? Thanks!

    I assume you've looked at Palimpsest Disk Utility? System>Administration>Disk Utility

    It gives lots of disk info...

    bluelamp999 and lidex, both my thanks for your replies. I do know the programs you mentioned, but i'm more interested in programs which also are able to check disk like scandisk or chkdsk for dos/windows. In a way a sort of Norton Utilities but then for Linux.

    There's always fsck - http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...n8/fsck.8.html

    Though I haven't ever needed to us it...

    Yeah, gparted does that. Also resizes partitions, creates partitions, formats, etc.
