Parted Magic Is a Linux boot disc that can run from either a CD/DVD disc or a USB Flash Drive. Once you boot with Parted Magic, there are a variety of tools available such as File Manager (similar to that of Windows explorer), Partition Editor that allows you to create, resize, delete, move or copy partitions, data rescue which allows the recovery of files and folders and a lot more. There's simply too many tools to mention. Although Parted Magic Is based on Linux, It can also be used to boot Into the Windows platform and perform tasks by mounting the Windows HDD and working from there.
As mentioned, even though Parted Magic Is a Linux boot disc, It can also be used on the Windows platform to perform tasks such as resetting the local user account password, editing the registry, performing hard disk tasks by mounting partitions and the list goes on. Even If you have "Secure Boot" enabled on your Windows PC, Parted Magic will still boot In successfully. Although I haven't personally tested It, It's said to also be compatible on an Intel Mac OS.
This Is the latest version at the time of this article. It comes In a bootable ISO Image file that you can either burn to disc, or create a bootable USB Flash Drive.
