Features

The program is directly bootable from a CD, USB flash drive, or through a network using PXE on PC hardware, and does not require installation, or the presence of an installed operating system.[3]

Although originally designed for mechanical hard disk drives, Parted Magic is suitable for use also with solid state drives and can perform a secure erase (a method to return a drive to its factory state).

Parted Magic supports reading and writing to a variety of modern file systems, including ext3, ext4, FAT, exFAT, and NTFS, and as such is able to access disk drives formatted for use under Microsoft Windows and GNU/Linux systems.

The software's distribution includes local network and Internet support, and comes with the Firefox web browser.[4]

System requirements

As of version 11.11.11, Parted Magic supports Intel x86 and x86-64 processors natively, and requires a computer with at least an i586 Intel-compatible processor and 175MB of RAM.[5] x86 versions from 2013_09_26 do not require the Physical Address Extension (PAE) computer processor feature.[6]
