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.

      Nice drive, works like a charm

      Small, compact drive, comes with both USB A/C cables.

If you're a Mac-only user, Disk Utility will remove the partition and you can have the whole 4 TB space available for files. If you want, you can repartition for TimeMachine so it won't take over the entire drive, and section off a partition for files or Music/Movie libraries. Not my first G-Drive, and it won't be my last.
