HI THIS HARD DRIVE COMES FACTORY FORMATED RAID 1 AND YOU WILL ONLY SEE 1TB

RAID 1 MIRROS THE CONTENTS OF THE DISK MAKING A FORM OF 1:1 RATIO REALTIME BACKUP THE CONTENTS OF THE DISK IN THE ARRAY ARE IDENTICAL TO THAT OF EVERY OTHER DISK IN THE ARRAY.DURING THE WRITING PROCESS IT COPY’S THE DATA  IDENTICALLY TO BOTH DRIVES.

Nigthawk,

Advantage of RAID1 (1TB) is in case 1 drive goes bad, your data is not lost as same data gets copied to 2nd drive.

Advantage of RAID0 (2TB) is twice the size, but lacks RAID1 advantage.

You can change from RAID 1 to RAID0 by simply using supplied WD Drive manager to change RAID mode.

Please note, your data will be wiped.

Iombi,

Please check Disk manager and make sure it is formatted to NTFS.

Good luck
