2 Drive TiVo Upgrade

I have had 2 drives in my TiVo for ages now (original 40 + Maxtor 120) and it's about time I upgraded the orginal drive (just for the reason it's getting noisy if nothing else)

If I'm only upgrading the 40 do I need to remove Both and put them in my PC or just the one that's being "enlarged" ;-)

The 40 is still the primary drive.....

dd A drive to replacement.

mfsadd to expand into new space (mfsadd requires both drives of a two-drive set to be present).

Ideally you'd read the third post of the Fixes thread and manually increase the size of your swap partition between doing those two steps.

...and follow the instructions carefully, including backups, to avoid losing all recordings like I did last weekend when installing a second drive...
