Premier drive upgrade with WINMFS

Just trying to verify that WINMFS will copy and expand an original premier drive onto a larger 1Tb drive without doing anything out of the ordinary.

80hr Series 2...lifetime upgraded to 225 total hours (not using)
Tivo HD 2Tb HDD internal upgrade... lifetime ... wired
Tivo Premier 1TB HDD internal upgrade ... lifetime ... wireless G

No. WinMFS will not expand a Premiere properly. JMFS is the tool that works with Premiere units to expand.

When TiVo developed the Series 4 platform (the Premiere) they changed some stuff about the partition layout and file system, and neither WinMFS nor the MFS Live cd or other versions of MFS Tools know how to deal with the changes, and can only screw up an S4 (or S5) drive.
