Question Partition Manager/Viewer Needed

I would like a partitioning program which not only lists the partitions and their formats, but also tells me what is in each partition. I have Windows 10, GeckoLinux, and Linux Mint 19 on my computer, but neither Mini Partition Manager or G-Parted show me more than the number of partitions. I'm certain that during my fumbling install, I created more than the necessary number of GeckoLinux and Linux Mint 19 partitions, and I'd like to delete the unnecessary ones.
Suggestions for such a program, please?

Thanks,
tlcmd

I doubt there's a partitioning program to do what you need for both Windows and Linux.
You'll have to search the Linux partitions with software like FSearch or Catfish.

I agree. I don't think that this exists.

All the partition managers that I've used display the partition format/file system but don't show the operating system. However, they do show the partition label which can be used to indicate the boot OS. I usually include the OS in the partition label so I know the "owner" each boot partition plus any swap and data partitions.

I remember a question like this from a few years ago but I couldn't find it when I searched here.

That's the way I do too. Labeling the partitions helps.
