How to enable NTFS and HFS+ support in Gparted

Posted in Uncategorized on May 24, 2009 by HydTech

I use Gparted to clone/backup my OSX86 partition. You’ll notice that the hfs and hfs+ options are greyed out. I need NTFS to format a storage space to share between Operating systems.

Start up terminal and enter:

sudo apt-get install hfsplus hfsutils hfsprogs ntfsprogs

now you can use gparted with ntfs, hfs and hfsplus formats.
