why did my hero 6 break up the files to 4 gb each?

I too a video of about 43 minutes.  when I connected the camera to my mac it opened quick and said initializing.  after a while I looked at the destination location and there were 4 files of 4gb each.  is this normal or do i need to do something to merge the files in the camera??

Hi @loucip,
