Ive just got myself a new Seagate 2TB Expansion desktop drive. I need to format it to work with my iMac. I've got as far as the Utilities page and found the drive but when you get to the bit with the options ' First Aid / Erase / Raid / Restore' i'm a bit lost . Could someone point me in the right direction please.
