GParted News Item 162
We are investigating reports of intermittent crashes with GParted 0.15.0.
See Bug 697727 - Segfault in livecd Gparted v 0.15.0-3 when copying partition.
The risk of LOSS of DATA is highest when performing partition moves, resizes, copies, and checks. As such we recommend using GParted 0.14.1 for all move, resize, copy, and check operations.
Other operations such as create, delete, format, label, set UUID, and delete might also crash, but these should not result in unexpected data loss, and the operation can be repeated.
Until this problem is resolved we advise using the last stable release of GParted Live, which is GParted Live 0.14.1-6.
We highly recommend that you BACKUP your DATA before using any partitioning tool.
