I just tried this procedure - successfully - to setup a link for transferring Tivo files using my Tivo Desktop to my Seagate GoFlex_Home NAS (Network Attached Storage) device. With hopes of being more succinct (clear) in the description of the procedure, I leave this post ...
SETUP PROCEDURE FOR TRANSFERING TIVO FILES DIRECTLY TO A SEAGATE GOFLEX_HOME
Use the Following Procedure is a specific example of how to setup a "Folder
Link" to transfer Tivo files using Tivo Desktop to a Seagate GoFlex_Home
NAS (Network Attached Storage) storage device. The link is from the "My
Tivo Recordings" folder to a "TivoTransfers" folder in the "GoFlex_Home
Personal" drive which Seagate designates the (Z
1.) Create a "TivoTransfers" folder in the root of the GoFlex_Home (Z
(the personal drive referenced by the name "GoFlex Home Personal").
2.) Open a command prompt window running in administrator mode.
3.) Navigate to the TiVo folder using the following command line:
cd \users\username\Documents\My Tivo Recordings
4.) To create and store your link in your "My Tivo Recordings" folder, enter
the following command line. (The "Link To" location in the example is
the"personal" folder in the GoFlex. (To confirm your own GoFlex folder
name click on the "Folder View" icon in the Seagate Deskboard.)
mklink /D Tivo2GoFlex "\\GOFLEX_HOME\GoFlex Home
If done correctly a confirmation line in the command prompt will read ...
symbolic link created for Tivo2GoFlex <<===>>
\\GOFLEX_HOME\GoFlex Home Personal\TivoTransfers
and you should see a "Tivo2GoFlex" link in your "My Tivo Recordings"
5.) Start Tivo Desktop and change the default storage directory by
clicking on the above link.
I hope somebody finds this useful.
