    Is this a new bug perhaps?
    Sorry, v0.33 works perfectly. Thanks!

    gdisk never let me down when recovering or doing shenanigans to gpt partitions.

    You checked a long time ago them. I've been using the gparted live image for at least 5 years in UEFI mode. It might not be Secure Boot signed though, I haven't really had an opportunity to test that yet.



    gparted has come with ntfs-3g since 2012 at least, I'm fairly sure, and I've used it to resize NTFS partitions since at least 2015.
    I remember downloading the newest image this year and having trouble with ntfs-3g.

    It doesn't come with ntfs-3g either, which makes it borderline useless. You'd expect a GParted live system to have robust support for file systems (needed for things like resizing partitions), but it doesn't. It's still a nice debian-based live image that can be turned into a pretty useful system if you feel like it. I haven't looked into how they set it up, but it boots up pretty quickly.
