    Well for your acute information MY Ubuntu has no gparted or qtparted 
on it as well as no chkdsk. The parted I have is version 1.7.1 and it is 
all I have.

    No but the hard disk is on. I used parted /dev/sda check and it said 
it didn't know anything about the file system.  So perhaps I can get the 
other stuff by apt-get but why do you think it will work?
