Whenever we bought a new hard disk drive or the blazingly fast solid state drive and wants to use it for the first time, we have to format it and partition it before we are able to use it. If you’re looking to convert GPUID Partition Table (GPT), which is the standard for the layout of the partition table into a Master Boot Record (MBR), or to convert simple volume to primary partition, then you’re going to need a proper partition software to be able to do it.
There is a very reliable and very easy to use partition software that is out there in the market called EaseUs Partition Master which is highly recommended and is being used by more than 20 million users worldwide. The built-in wizard is the highlight of the show here that allows for a professional and reliable disk management that can be used by everybody, without needing you to have any technical knowledge. You can use it to manage disks and volumes for better data protection and disk space use. It can help in terms of resizing, moving, copying, splitting and merging of partitions without any data loss.
The partition software has three major functions which is the Partition Manager, Disk & Partition Copy Wizard and Partition Recovery Wizard. There is also an option to create a bootable CD or DVD in case of a system boot failure so you’ll be able to restore your machine in the shortest possible time, in minutes rather than hours or days. Let’s check out each of its functions to understand more on how it can help us.
With the Partition Manager, it can be used to convert gpt to mbr, convert simple volume to primary partition, create a partition, resize or move partitions, merge, split, wipe or format partitions to make full use of the hard disk drive capacity.
With the Disk & Partition Copy Wizard, it allows for copying an entire partition with the fast file-by-file copy for data protection purpose. You can also use it to clone the entire hard disk to another hard disk without having to reinstall Windows. With it, you can upgrade your existing system to a bigger capacity hard disk drive or the faster solid state drive with just one click.
The third and final feature of EaseUs Partition Master is the Partition Recovery Wizard whose main function is being able to recover deleted or lost partitions from unallocated space for any reason, either personal, hardware or software failure or even a virus attack. Also if there’s a problem after you have repartitioned a hard disk drive, it can be used to recover the deleted or lost partitions with the two recovery modes, Automatic and Manual.
So the next time if you’re looking to convert GPT to MBR or to convert simple volume to primary partition, you know there’s a software called EaseUS Partition Master. There’s a free version with limited features or you can also buy the fully-featured Professional edition for USD39.95 for a single user license or $49.95 for free lifetime upgrade.
