Free partition manager provided by EaseUS software supports you to easily resize GPT disk/partition or move partiion under Windows 10/8/7/XP and Vista without losing data.

Advantages of GPT disk

GPT is the abbreviation of GUID Partition Table. The widespread MBR partitioning scheme, dating from the early 1980s, imposed limitations which affected the use of newer hardware. Intel therefore developed a new partition-table format in the late 1990s as part of what eventually became UEFI. The GPT as of 2010 forms a subset of the UEFI specification.

Now EaseUS Partition Master is enhanced with GPT disk support, you can enjoy both the advantages of GPT disk and free partition management now.
