How to Back Up GPT Disk and Partition

Updated on Apr 23, 2019 by Brithny to Backup Utility

Summary:
EaseUS Todo Backup is a reliable data backup software that supports to backup and restore gpt partitions or disks.

GPT provides a more flexible mechanism for partitioning disks than the older Master Boot Record (MBR) partitioning scheme that has been common to PCs. It has following advantages:

  • GPT disks can grow to a very large size. The number of partitions on a GPT disk is not constrained by temporary schemes such as container partitions as defined by the MBR Extended Boot Record (EBR).
  • The GPT disk partition format is well defined and fully self-identifying. GPT disks use primary and backup partition tables for redundancy and CRC32 fields for improved partition data structure integrity. The GPT partition format uses version number and size fields for future expansion.
  • Each GPT partition has a unique identification GUID and a partition content type, so no coordination is necessary to prevent partition identifier collision. Each GPT partition has a 36-character Unicode name, which means that any software can present a human-readable name for the partition without any additional understanding of the partition.

EaseUS's backup program supports GPT disk partition backup and recovery.
