4. Free Partition Manager to Convert MBR and GPT
If you have got a hard drive larger than 3TB and initialized it with MBR partition style, you probably regret of doing so. This is because MBR disks only support hard disks up to 2TB, and the rest disk space is shown as unallocated space, not able to be included into any partitions. So the best way to make full use of the disk space is to convert the MBR disk to GPT disk.
