We don't have any archive or shows that we want to keep, and we have caught up on all the new season pass recordings from the fall over the holiday break, so the drive mostly just has kids programming, reruns, and TiVo suggestions... nothing we can't live with losing.
As for the drive, we are going to sell the premiere and I doubt that keeping the 1TB drive will increase its value much over the 320GB one, so why give it away? I probably wouldn't have upgraded the drive except that I found a security system DVR that we weren't using and discovered the 1TB WD AV drive and decided to put it to good use. Don't think the TiVo has ever been over 30% full.
