    It CAN be partitioned

    • Written by Adam PW S from Vancouver

    I'm not sure what trouble the previous reviewer was having but this drive can indeed be partitioned. Open Disk Utilities on your Mac, choose the drive, choose Partition, select the small partition that contains the utilities, and click the "-" icon at the bottom to remove it. Then reformat the drive and it will be one partition using the entire disk.

    Not for Mac

    • Written by Hamid R from Singapore

    I bought this item last month. To date, I still can't transfer all my files from old hard disk. The item is most suitable for Windows. But definitely not for Mac.

    Nice Drive

    • Written by Dennis P from Palm Harbor

    This drive is equipped with software if you wish to convert it to Windows format and comes with cables for USB-C and for USB 3.

    It is a 4TB drive with a small partition (40MB) for the Windows setup software - that partition can be removed with Disk Utility.

    Not sure if the internals are 2 each 2TB drives or a single 4TB drive. The tools I have only show that it is WesternDigital GTech. The Mac shows only a 4TB drive.

    permanently partitioned

    • Written by David P from High Rolls

    size of partitions can be changed but can never get rid of partitions, unmounted partition keeps re-mounting when drive is re-connected. I find this a bad feature. it makes the drive inflexible, there is always another drive on the desktop to confuse things.
