Re: how to change the partition (GPT to NTFS)

This is drives for Windows GPT and NTFS are 2 different things. Most drives smaller than 2T are NTFS and MRB. Drives larger than 2T are NTFS and GPT. The MRB and GPT have to do with the boot files. Some motherboards use GPT and Windows 8 uses it for secure boot. That's about all I know about it
