parted 是 Linux 上修改 partion 的利器來.

它可以建立(mkpart), 刪除(rm), 檢查(check) Partion.

而且還可以 更改容量(resize) 及 救回(rescue) 誤刪的 partion !!!

注意: resize partion  唔等於 resize file system !!






parted [options] [device [command [options...]...]]


parted /dev/sdb mklabel msdos

parted /dev/sdb mkpart pri 0% 100%

parted /dev/sdb print


互動 Shell


(parted) help <cmd>


(parted) help set



Modern HDD starting after about 1TB can use 4kB physical sectors.

Its important for performance that filesystems are aligned on 4kB boundaries,

as the drive will do read/modify/write to fake 512B physical sectors.

-a alignment-type


  • optimal
  • minimal
  • cylinder

用 parted 的 "optimal" 或 "minimal" 就沒有 align 的問題


fdisk -b 4096 /dev/sda

switched off DOS compatibility of fdisk ("c") and changed view mode to sectors ("u")

HardDisk Format 的要求:


Make sure that all partitions start on a multiple of 8 sectors (8x 512B = 4KB) and

that partition sizes are multiples of 8 sectors.


The first partition starting at sector 63 is done automatically by the partitioning program to optimize read/write performance.


The file system defaults on most Linux systems are to use blocks of 4KB data.

Typically no specific actions are needed to configure block sizes for WD Advanced Format drives.

在 interactive mode 看本看資料

print all = parted -l

print free

print <n>

<n> 是指 print 時的 Number, 如

Model: ST362021 C " " " " " " " (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 60.0GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos

 2      30.0GB  60.0GB  30.0GB  primary


建立 Partition Table(mklabel)


mklabel  <label-type>


  • loop (raw disk access)
  • msdos
  • gpt


建立 Partition(mkpart)


mkpart [...]

Creates a new partition, without creating a new file system on that partition.

You may specify a file system type,

to set the appropriate partition code in the partition table for the new partition.


i.e 在 Device 上建立4個 partiion

選擇要進行操作的 Device

select DEVICE

i.e. select /dev/sda

建立第 1 個 partiion

(parted) mkpart

Partition type?  primary/extended? primary
File system type?  [ext2]? ext3
Start? 0%
End? 33%

Start 及 END 的表達方式可以是"容量"或"%", 如 4GB or 10%


File system type:

swap = linux-swap

建立第 2 個

(parted) mkpart

Partition type?  primary/extended? primary
File system type?  [ext2]? ext3
Start? 15%
End? 100%
Warning: You requested a partition from 9003MB to 60.0GB.
The closest location we can manage is 30.0GB to 60.0GB.  Is this still
acceptable to you?

建立第 3 個

Default 單位 megabytes

Start=34s   <-- (units in sectors)

End=Total sectors - 34s

建立第 4 個

mkpart primary 2200 100%

當沒有 partation table 時:

(parted) mkpart
Error: /dev/sda: unrecognised disk label

unrecognised disk label




"s" (sectors),

"B" (bytes),

"MB"  <- megabyte (10^n)

"MiB" <- mebibyte (2^n)

"%" (percentage of device size),

"compact"  (megabytes for input, and a human-friendly form for output)


Set Flags


set minor flag state

  • boot
  • root
  • swap
  • hidden
  • raid
  • lvm
  • lba


set 1 boot on

set 1 raid off



this flag can be enabled to tell MS DOS, MS Windows 9x and MS Windows ME based operating systems to use Linear (LBA) mode.


Rescue 測試

刪除 Number 為 1 的 partion

rm 1

!!!!!!!! 沒有再問一次的 !!!!!!!!


(parted) rescue
Start? 0
End? 100%

searching for file systems... 0%        (time left 179:30)
Information: A ntfs primary partition was found at 32.3kB -> 60.0GB.  Do you
want to add it to the partition table?




方案 1:

parted /dev/sdc

(parted) unit s

(parted) print

Number  Start  End         Size        Type     File system  Flags
 1      2048s  488386559s  488384512s  primary  ext4         boot

(parted) rm 1

(parted) mkpart pri ext4 2048s 100%

方案 2:

# Error: The resize command has been removed in parted 3.0

(parted) resize 1 0.00B 100%


假設要 resize lamp 這個 Partition

mount | grep lamp      # 看看它的 device 是什麼

/dev/sdd6 on /var/lib/lxc/lamp/rootfs type btrfs 

umount  /dev/sdd6     # 必須 umount 它

# 查看原來 partition 的位置

parted /dev/sdd

(parted) unit s

(parted) print

 6      23633920s   101562367s   77928448s    logical   btrfs
 5      179689472s  273436671s   93747200s    logical   ext4

# 刪除及建立

(parted) rm 6

(parted) mkpart log btrfs 23633920s 131562367s

 7      23633920s   131562367s   107928448s   logical   btrfs   lba
 5      179689472s  273436671s   93747200s    logical   ext4

mount -a                    # mount by UUID

cd /var/lib/lxc/lamp/rootfs

btrfs fi resize max .     # resize fs (BTRFS)

df -h | grep lamp        # checking

/dev/sdd7   52G   36G   15G  71% /var/lib/lxc/lamp/rootfs




parted 錯地方 (Device, Partition)


parted /dev/sdc1

(parted) unit s

Number  Start  End         Size        File system  Flags
 1      0s     488384511s  488384512s  ext4

parted /dev/sdc

(parted) unit s

(parted) print

Number  Start  End         Size        Type     File system  Flags
 1      2048s  488386559s  488384512s  primary  ext4         boot


parted mkpart without set "File system" or "Name"





The mkpart command does not actually create the file system:

the fs-type parameter will simply be used by parted to set a 1-byte code that is used by

boot loaders to "preview" what kind of data is found in the partition, and act accordingly if necessary.

 * 如果不 set 它們, 最簡單方法係轉用 fdisk
