I am recently new to the world of Macs, having purchased an iMac about a month ago. I have also purchased a Seagate GoFlex Desk External Hard Drive, which I want to utilise as a backup drive and a drive to which I save graphics files. I went through the installation process for the Mac using the software on the disk.
When I try to back up to it I receive an error message: “The backup disk is not in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) Format, which is required.” I have been unable to find anything to assist me with this problem. How do I address this issue?
A further issue I have is with the mouse. When I am viewing emails I sometimes forget and tap the mouse. This results in the display being enlarged somewhat. How do I reverse this?

Have a look at www.macworld.com.au/28527 for instructions. In Step 2, you want to choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled).
Regarding your mouse zooming, you can turn this off by going to System Preferences > Mouse. Then, under the Point & Click tab, un-tick the ‘Smart Zoom’ option.
