What is GPT partition?

Developed by Intel the GPT partition stands for GUID partition and it is one of the newest partition tables that have been developed to make sure that the old technique of MBR partition is overcome to make sure that the hardware requirements that were once restricted through the constant upgrade are made compatible with the systems. The table is referred to as GUID as each and every part of the disk partition is “Global Unique Identifier” and for the same reason that the partition string is so long and unique as it has to hold the value of Global unique identifier The MBR limitations have been totally eliminated due to the fact that the drives that are processed as per this table are the ones which are larger in size and limits depend upon the OS and its file storing requirements. The partition number is infinite and the only finite number in this regard is the OS upon which the drive partition is to be performed.
