    I have a TCD746320 and the hard drive went bad. I'm hoping to format a new drive for replacement, but can't find an image file? Help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    I got a new 2 TB hard drive to replace a dead original hard drive. I put an image on it and, not understanding the way the universe works, applied supersize to it and not expand. It all works well in my resurrected premiere, but only has a capacity of an original 320 GB drive. The instructions at the head of this thread explicitly say run expand before supersize, and I didn't really snap to that before I ran just supersize. I'm going to try it anyway if I don't get a reply to this before I get a chance to do the job (because I know how to recover if it doesn't go well) but will running expand after supersize screw anything up? And will then running supersize after expand screw anything up?
    Thanks.

    You should be fine. AFAIK, the only thing that might happen is that you cannot reverse the supersize. Although if I recall, that option is not present in JMFS.

    I have also have TCD746320 and the hard drive went bad. Would it be possible to get an image so I can replace the hard drive? Thank you.

    I have a TCD746320 and I need some guidance. A few years ago I upgraded the drive from 320 GB to 1 TB using JMFS Live CD Ver 1.04. Everything worked fine for years, but I think the 1 TB drive is now starting to fail. Can I use the JMFS CD to copy a 1 TB to another 2TB or should I be using some other software like MFS tools.
    Thanks for the help.

    I'd use MFSTools 3.2 It will copy your existing drive to a new 2TB drive and keep the standard "two pair" MFS drive layout, ensuring future expansion with an external drive.

    No, most people here will recommend to not use Purple drives despite NewEgg indicating they are the replacement for the older AV-GP drives. WD Red drives are the most recommended drive line now.
