I put a new drive in my Series 3 (original) this weekend (went from internal + external to a single internal drive). It was my understanding the recordings were striped across both drives when using an external drive. However, I had a number of shows on the internal drive after the divorce, some of them even recorded in the past couple months. There did not seem to be a pattern to the recordings left on the internal disk, but I had assumed only recordings from before the addition of the external drive would exist. I had the external drive for three years, has something changed or am I simply remembering wrong about how recordings are performed when you have an external and internal HD? Just curious. I simply unmarried the drives to save the internal, but I do want to know what is going on here.
