I am new to Linux especially Suse Linux. I installed Suse Linux 12.2 on a computer. I am a Windows and Apple guy. So, be gentle with me. I have two questions regarding Disk Management and Recovery software. Keep in mind, I am a GUI interface guy. I am not a command line, DOS like person. I like the look and feel of icons and using the mouse.

1. Disk Management, I am looking for a GUI interface disk manager similar to what you would find on a Windows computer. Any suggestions on a Disk Manager? I want to create, delete, and resize partitions.

2. Recovery Software, I need a good recovery software or tool to recover files and documents from a second hard drive. Again, it has to have a GUI interface. In the Windows world, we have all kinds of Recovery software at our disposal. In the Linux world, is there really good recovery software?

Thanks,

Philip
