    Everything looks normal for a system with 2 drives in it. You've got a 120 or 128 GB drive (probably SSD), and a 4 TB data drive.

    Given the 500 MB size of the recovery partition, it is more than likely just the standard recovery partition created by a clean install of Windows 10. This is a clean install of Windows 10 Home in a virtual machine:
