How many graphical programs does Debian actually have that are

Another well-known one is GParted, which doesn't really have an
alternative for people to use instead...

You can download a version of GParted that is bootable, and you don't
need your operating system to use it. You can then change labels, or
expand or compress partitions without regard to what's on them.
You can even add or delete partitions, so be careful.
