I've searched everywhere online to find a solution to my problem and see this forum as my last resort.
I upgraded my tivo series 2 from a 40gb hd to a 250gb hd probably 2 years ago. Now the hd is making a "clicking" noise and I want to replace it with another 250gb hd before it dies out. However, the new blank hd is slightly smaller by a few mb than the current 250gb hd.
I tried to use either "dd" command in linux or the "mfsbackup / mfsrestore" but both didn't work due to the slightly smaller new drive. Short of shelling out for another identical drive or a larger drive, is there a way I can basically duplicate the hd to the new one?
Thanks in advance for any help to this.
