GPT is short for GUID Partition Table. It, along with MBR, is a partition scheme. Of course, GPT has its own advantages and disadvantages. Its advantages include: it supports hard disk which is over 2 TB; it has backup of partition table and the partition number and size under this partition scheme are almost unlimited. Since GPT has so many advantages, why shouldn’t we use this partition scheme whenever we partition? The answer is no, because not all Windows systems support this kind of partition solution, such as Win XP 32 bit and Win 2000/NT/9x. If users’ computer system happens to be Win XP 32 bit or other systems that don’t support GPT, it’s necessary for them to convert GPT to MBR. What’s more, users may also change GPT to MBR because of their habits.
In general, users can change GPT to MBR by entering CMD. Although this can make disk conversion successful, it’s difficult for users to carry out. If users are not very proficient in computer, they may don’t know how to correctly input command to convert GPT to MBR. At this critical moment, users can turn to third party tool in order to solve this problem.
MiniTool Partition Wizard is a good choice for users to change GPT to MBR easily. It’s a so powerful and convenient partition manager that it can help users achieve disk conversion not only easily but safely, because its built-in data protection function will be automatically launched when it works. Now, the steps of converting GPT to MBR with MiniTool Partition Wizard are shown as follows.
1. To resoundingly change GPT to MBR, users need to launch MiniTool Partition Wizard first and choose a disk to convert.
Notice: Users had better back up data before they change GPT to MBR, because any third party tool can’t ensure that data is absolutely safe.
2. Click “Convert GPT Disk to MBR Disk” from the left action panel.
3. Choose “Yes” and wait for the completion of the conversion.
4. Click “OK” to go back to the main interface.
Here we’d like to finish the introduction to how to change GPT to MBR with this powerful tool. Users are welcomed to know more functions of MiniTool Partition Wizard by themselves.
