In the process of using GPT disk, many users may need to change the location of GPT partition.Especially in the situation where bad sector occurs, people will be eager to move the specified partition to other location. Unfortunately, people can not fulfill the task in the Windows built in disk management tool(there is no such feature in the utility). Then, what can users do?
Note: Master boot record (MBR) disks use the standard BIOS partition table. GUID partition table (GPT) disks use unified extensible firmware interface (UEFI). One advantage of GPT disks is that you can have more than four partitions on each disk. GPT is also required for disks larger than 2 terabytes.
Actually, many third party partition managers offer the feature of changing partition location. Among them, the powerful MiniTool Partition Wizard is worth recommending. This partition magic, developed by a Canadian company, is widely accepted by many computer users. With the freeware, users who are not familiar with disk management can move the GPT partition in simple steps. What’s more, they will never be afraid of data loss.
