Guess PC disk partition table, find lost partitions

Gpart is a tool which tries to guess the primary partition table of a PC-type disk in case the primary partition table in sector 0 is damaged, incorrect or deleted.

It is also good at finding and listing the types, locations, and sizes of inadvertently-deleted partitions, both primary and logical. It gives you the information you need to manually re-create them (using fdisk, cfdisk, sfdisk, etc.).

The guessed table can also be written to a file or (if you firmly believe the guessed table is entirely correct) directly to a disk device.

Currently supported (guessable) filesystem or partition types:

 * BeOS filesystem type.
 * BtrFS filesystem type.
 * FreeBSD/NetBSD/386BSD disklabel sub-partitioning scheme used on Intel
 * Linux second extended filesystem (Ext2).
 * MS-DOS FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32 "filesystems".
 * IBM OS/2 High Performance filesystem.
 * Linux LVM and LVM2 physical volumes.
 * Linux swap partitions (versions 0 and 1).
 * The Minix operating system filesystem type.
 * MS Windows NT/2000 filesystem.
 * QNX 4.x filesystem.
 * The Reiser filesystem (version 3.5.X, X > 11).
 * Sun Solaris on Intel platforms uses a sub-partitioning scheme on PC hard
   disks similar to the BSD disklabels.
 * Silicon Graphics' journalling filesystem for Linux.

Gpart is useful in recovery actions and forensics investigations.
