upgrading tivo premiere HD, did I mess up?

so I was going through the steps to upgrade the HD, but i select the tivo as the destination drive, it started to copy but obviously ran out of space.

restarted and did it on the correct drive. I'm at a friends so I don't have the tivo with me. Just wanted to know if I messed up here or if I'll be ok.

thanks

I you overwrote the original TiVo drive, I don't think you can subsequently make a good copy of it.

As Arcady said, if you selected the TiVo drive as the destination drive then you overwrote it with whatever was on the replacement drive (0's?)
