Description Mike Fleetwood 2015-10-07 11:18:45 UTC
Hi,

Sorry for this very late report.  GParted before version 0.21.0 suffered
from an off by one sector error when moving and copying partitions which
corrupts data, although nobody seems to be noticing the impact.

Affects:
    Fedora 21    (GParted 0.20.0)
    EL 6         (GParted 0.19.1)
    EPEL 7       (GParted 0.19.1)
Does not affect:
    Fedora 22    (GParted 0.23.0)
    Fedora 23    (GParted 0.23.0)

Recommend upgrading to the latest GParted 0.23.0.  However just applying
a patch will fix it too.

Thanks,
Mike Fleetwood (GParted Developer)
