    Help wanted from PC Guru ! Please

    I have bought a 1tb HDD ( mechanical) to use as a games harddrive but its got faster seek times than the current one so i decided to clone my current MBR disk to the new disk that i set up as GPT.
    Ive used GPT as i understand GPT is faster than MBR and better suited to UEFI motherboards and 64 bit Os (win 8.1) the other benefits i wont benefit from as its only a 1tb disk.
    I tried using EaseUs Todo backup free but it didnt work although it looked like a copy.(apart from system reserved being labelled correctly but appeared empty and the primary partition missing boot file , page file?

    Has anybody managed to clone a MBR hdd to a bigger GPT hdd successfully and crucially .. simply ? if so use idiot instructions please.

    Little confused as I'm tired but leave it as MBR buddy, you will not see any performance difference.

    Ok thanks
    If there is no performance difference i may as well use MBR then.
    Hopefully that will save me several days of grief.
    Ill try to clone MBR to MBR (First attempts at cloning)
