I just got a new G73SW-A1 and the hard drive set up seems kind of bizarre. From the description it seemed like it had 1TB of total storage on two 500GB hard drives. However, mine has about 900GB on 4 hard drives. They are: OS (C: ) - 186GB, DATA (D: ) - 254GB, SDATA1 (E: ) - 232GB, and SDATA2 (F: ) - 232GB. The only used storage is about 36GB on the C: drive for the OS. The D, E, and F drives can only be formatted in NTFS in the capacities they are right now. I don't know if this is how they are supposed to be set up but I thought that it was supposed to just have two 500GB drives. Anyone have any information or ideas?

You can use Window's Disk Manager to delete the extra partitions and then add the free space to the 1st OS and Storage partition, and have only 1 working partition on each. Don't delete the 20GB one on the first drive. :)
