Install GParted on Debian 12

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install GParted on Debian 12. For those of you who didn’t know, GParted, short for GNOME Partition Editor, is a powerful tool designed for managing disk partitions. It supports a wide range of file systems, including ext2/ext3/ext4, FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, ReiserFS, JFS, and XFS. With GParted, you can easily resize partitions to optimize disk space, create new partitions for organizing your data, and even copy partitions for backup purposes.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS.
