Partition table entries are not in disk order

It tells me that the "Partition table entries are not in disk order"
well, I had used gparted to resize my sda1, and then to resize my sda2, and then created sda6, sda7, sda8,
each one being around 35 gigs. and sda1 is around 12 gigs., and the swap is only 2.5 gigs. so how do I
put these entries into disk order?

Also, can you tell me how to establish a local mount point for the backup destination partition.
I want to backup sda1 and I want it backed up to sdb1
and how do I mount that backup destination partition to the mount point?
