Bug Description

Binary package hint: gparted

I was running from the final natty 64 bit livecd (on USB), trying to copy all of the partitions from my internal SATA drive to my external SATA drive via eSATA, on my Lenovo Thinkpad W510. This was a long operation. I left, and when I came back, gparted had apparently crashed (according to the little dialog box that natty popped up).

After inspecting the destination drive however, it seems all the partitions did copy. I'm not exactly sure when during the copying process gparted crashed.

Actually, it looks like all the partitions except the swap partition were copied properly. So perhaps the crash occurred while trying to copy the swap partition. I've added a screenshots of my source and destination drives.
