3.5

Our rating: 

3.5

Pros & Cons:

Supports for ext2, ext3, ext4, ntfs, fat16, fat32 and many other file systems. Most reliable overall in my experience, program itself is standard in Linux distribution.
Offline. Partitions need to be unmounted before they are allowed for editing. The Linux environment may be a bit intimidating for first-timers.
