Should I refomat external harddrive?

Quick question. I've just picked up a G Tech "G Drive Mobile". Obviously this thing is 'plug and play' with my Macbook Pro, however, is there any advantage in reformatting the drive? I note that the 1TB drive is actually only 930GB useable so wondering if reformatting frees up some of this space.

This may be a dumb question, I know next to nothing about this sort of thing...
