    How long does it usually take mfs it has been 20 hours now it's been on partition 7. This is with the source and destination on 2.0 USB external drives. There are no programs recorded on it just full guide and what ever Tivo puts on at 3 in the morning, I had it hooked up for a month to make sure modem and everything else was ok before putting large drive in is a S3 652. Should I give up do a clear and delete and try again? How long would it take after C/D?

    Was a download the latest version (is on another computer can't see # now) did back up to file on computer before doing copy (only took couple of minutes). When I put the back up file on the new 1TB drive when done asked if I wanted to use msf add I selected no looked at it with info then did add and supersize all super did was add 1 hour to SD. Never saw anything about -x not really any command lines just selecting drives what you wanted to do and start.
