As I noted I've used Labels for quite a while and the fact that Labels are ignored by Dolphin led me to use KDiskFree if I need to find a particular partition. The only disadvantage is that the partition has to be mounted to see how big it is. But at least they are in sda1, sda2, etc. order. I'd rea...

As far as I know UUID does not place partitions in the order that GParted does. The order is not a function that debian and others were able get the various hardware to sort reliably.

I have a friend of well over 40 years. He's an Engineer (EEE with Masters in Systems Analysis). I've mentioned Linux several times. One time he asked about BSD.
