Thanks doesn't quite explain the way it's only saying  200 MB available. Would it be a good idea  to format the hard drive?.

I've plugged it in  into the 3.0 port on my computer  but when I go to transfer files what is less than  4 TB it says there's not enough room. When I look at the storage available on the actual hard drive  it says there's only 200 MB available.  Does anyone know why this might be?.
