Users may want to know what the advantage of converting MBR disk to GPT without losing data is. Here we can find answer to this question by comparing MBR disk to GPT disk. At present, more and more computer users choose to format their disk with GPT rather than MBR, because GPT disk breaks through the limitation on the number of partitions.
MBR disk can have at most four primary partitions or three primary partitions with one extended partition. Only four hard disk partitions can’t satisfy users’ demands most of the time. Thus, MBR partitioning scheme needs to be improved. With regard to this, GPT partitioning scheme solves this problem very well. GPT disk has at most 128 partitions, because Windows only allows us to create at most 128 partitions. Users may choose to change disk type after comparing these two disk types.
When converting MBR disk to GPT without losing data is mentioned to users, they may want to change disk type with DM. However, if users use DM to achieve this, they need to reformat hard disk. This will make them lose all data on the hard drive.
So, we advise users to achieve converting MBR disk to GPT without losing data by using partition manager. MiniTool Partition Wizard is a good choice for users to realize this.
1. Run MiniTool Partition Wizard and choose a target MBR disk in order to realize converting MBR disk to GPT without losing data.
2. Click “Disk” from the menu bar and choose “Convert MBR Disk to GPT Disk”.
3. Click “Apply” from the tool bar.
Now, we believe that users can realize converting MBR disk to GPT without losing data by themselves. We suggest them that they click here to get this useful partition manager.
