2. MBR support up to 2 TB hard-Disk. It does not support more than 2 TB Hard-Drive.

3. MBR is the traditional partition scheme whereas GPT is the latest Partition Scheme of Hard-disk or Solid-State Drive (SSD) partition.

What is GPT {GUID (Globally unique identifiers) Partition Table}

1. In GPT (GUID Partition Table) we can make 128 partitions in Hard-Disk or Solid-State Disk (SSD).

2. It is based on the latest computer technology.

3. It is faster than MBR (Master Boot Record).

4. It supports all hard-Disk or Solid-State Disk (SSD). It also supports more than 2TB storage devices.
