My only concern with cloning the drive is it's likely going to clone the partition table as well. I feel I might end up with a 3TB drive with a 1TB partition on it, leaving 2 TB of unused space.
You're right though - the cost to try this is pretty low.
I'm honestly thinking I might actually have enough space with 1TB! I've lived with 1TB with my TiVoHD that I upgraded, and this one is only hovering around 25% after a week and a ton of suggestion records.
Wait.. Who am I kidding?? I know I'm going to upgrade it at some point, even if I justify it "just because it can be done..." The sooner the better I guess.
