I don't claim to know more than anybody but that is what I plan to do. There is tool at msflive that is used to create the command line when using the boot CD. The boot CD allows you to copy your current internal and external drives to one larger internal drive. I won't be doing this until next week or later but it appears feasible that I will have a single internal drive with all my current recordings on it. I wouldn't divorce the drive and I would explore the msflive site some more.
