As more and more people want to upgrade their Windows system, the questions about how to convert MBR to GPT increase. There are many options on the internet nowadays. For example, use Disk Management or the command line to change the MBR disk to GPT. But what people care about most is: are these solutions safe? In other words, is there any possibility of losing data using the methods? The two standard methods mentioned are not secure from this point of view. Because you need to delete all the partitions using Disk Management, the precondition that uses CMD to convert MBR to GPT is to delete all data first. 

In this case, you'd better use EaseUS Partition Master to change MBR to GPT, a third-party software with a safe Disk Converter tool that doesn't need to delete any partition or data. This tool can help you finish the process of disk conversion quickly and safely, and all you have to do is download and follow the step-by-step tutorial:
