    hi jan !!!

    i really didnt get your question...
    post the output of these command and then ask the question again...

    $ fdisk -l
    $ df -H <---- its capital 'H'

    What File System is this partition? Is it reiser fs or such?
    Here is a good table to show you what GParted can do. Check your file system against the table.
