Partition Recovery Course - GPT Test
Check where you should not to forget to look for GPT if you deal with an old GPT disk where
one sector back from the 128 GB boundary
one sector back from the 2 TB boundary
ten sectors forward from the 128 GB boundary
in 1024th sector
Choose the correct signature of GPT header
Check what a GPT partition entry contains
partition name in UTF-8 encoding
partition size in bytes
first sector of the partition
last sector of the partition
partition name in UTF-16 encoding
Why do the disks with GPT have MBR as well?
to provide additional reliability in case of failure
to provide compatibility with old partitioning software
two partitioning schemes are better than one
to provide additional performance
Check what you can get from GPT header
expected disk size
physical sector size
pointer to the backup copy of GPT
checksum of table of entries
What is the size of GPT header?
Where is a backup GPT table of entries located?
right after a GPT backup header
right before a GPT backup header
Where is a protective MBR located?
in sector 0
in sector 1
in sector 1024
in the last sector
What is the size of GPT entry?
usually 128 bytes but this is not obligatory
Where is the main copy of GPT header located?
in the middle of the physical disk
at the beginning of the physical disk
at the end of the physical disk
