    As of this time, the seagate fast raid 0 version only comes in the 4tb size.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    It comes formatted in ntfs.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Mac users who want to keep using it with ntfs will need to go to seagate's website to download an ntfs-for-mac program by paragon to be able to write to this drive.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    It's a free program on the seagate site.

    Alternatively, mac users could format the drive to mac's native mac os extended (journaled) file format (also known as hfs+ format).


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    If you want to share this hfs+ formatted drive with a pc, you can install paragon's hfs-for-win program on your pc to enable read/write capability on mac drives.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    This hfs-for-win program is also available for free on the seagate support site.

    A sign that it is not getting enough power is the arms making noticeable noise when the drive reads.
