Topic: [SOLVED] Bug when copying partitions?
it looks like GParted allows to copy one partition over an existing one (cf. http://gparted-forum.surf4.info/viewtopic.php?pid=11093 ). From my point of view, this is a severe bug that allows easy data destruction.
The "clean" way would be to refuse this copy operation, and if one would intend to copy one partition to a place that is already allocated by another partition, (s)he would have to manually delete this "target" partition first. This would not dramatically reduce the usability of GParted, but it would prevent data loss in some cases.
So the "feature" I'd request is to remove the possibility to copy one partition over another existing one.
