ASUS Rampage VI Extreme Encore is my motherboard right now: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07ZK7JTLL

1. Can I plug in two 2TB m.2 SSD on my motherboard, and have one Windows C drive with 4TB capacity? Or, am I forced to have a separate 2TB C drive and a separate 2TB D drive?

2. Suppose the answer to #1 is yes. But then, what if I just plug in one 4TB m.2 SSD? Does this one-4TB option provide faster computation than having two 2TB? My job is to run statistical analysis on 100GB of data.

Didn't your previous thread -- https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/upgrading-pcie.3759864/ say that storage performance didn't impact the software you are using ?
RAID striping data is always more hassle than it is worth, especially for no performance improvement in your case.

I put all my data onto my dropbox. But it appears that dropbox cannot be spread across drive C and drive D. My 2TB drive C wasn't enough to hold all my data. So I was looking for 4TB SSD.

So other than performance of SSD, (I think) I need a bigger SSD like 4TB.

That's why I am looking for a new SSD.
