    I am currently trying to upgrade from 160gb (full drive) to a 2 TB on my HD tivo. I am using the windows based MFSCOPY and it was running overnight so about 10 hours and is still not done. Is there anything I should do or just let it keep on going? Seems like maybe something is wrong but there is not anything under last unknown error. The ETA is a bunch of random numbers that doesn't show a time or date.

    If I stop the program can I ruin my 160gb original?

    I don't think windows MFS software works on 2TB disks....
    You need to use JMFS live CD....

    (stoping the copy should not affect the original disk)

    It looks like the progress bar is still moving, but if once it is done it wont be able to handle the 2tb size it might make sense to cancel. Guess I will do some more reading before I start the process over using a different method.

    If you are copying existing content, depending upon your PC, it could take 24 hours or more. Mine did.

    A previously noted, I also believe you are using the wrong tool for the job if you want 2TB of space. You will likely end up with 1.160 available. Cancel and use the appropriate tool.

    Check out the upgrade center.

    Thanks to both of you. I stopped the process and used the JMFS method took about an hour to transfer and expand and I am up and running again.

    Thanks for the quick responses.
