    Excellent, since the Edge with TE4 only has been self formatting all drive sizes I was wondering if a TE4 update made it so Bolts (and possibly Roamios) would do the same. This seems to show that it did, thanks for posting this!! Now I wonder about SMR drives, the Edge seems to fully format and use any drive put in it, including 2.5 "data" (ie not even AV rated) type SMR drives. Maybe same with Bolt and Roamio now (if on TE4). I still do not RECOMMEND an SMR drive if CMR is a possibility. Another interesting experiment would be to let a Bolt or Roamio on TE4 self format a large drive (at least 4TB, the larger the better), then try rolling it back to TE3. Wonder what would happen?

    Thanks for the size info. but this is the same 10TB exos drive I put in last year. so it sounds like I can go in following your instruction from the 10tb Romio post you made and increase this to it's maximum size?

    Thanks yes it is a fresh format , I did it in windows (the format) and I did the SLOW one to make sure Windows or the SMART sys took care of any sectors. but as you know that is a top of the line drive and i doubt it had any problems other than a corrupted file sys. before I rip it out of the Bolt I will do the mod with your tool.

    thanks again

    If you can, run mfsinfo -d on the drive and post the results.

    yes it is the 10tb Exos . but just to contribute I will do the command as you posted and then maybe do the expansion, but that would be a waste , cause soon it's going to be going inside the Edge, as soon as I know I have what I need, already have the cables someone here posted for the hard drive to the edge. Fedex is delivering tommorow, I'm off sunday, so I will try to do it then.

    we need to start a EDGE Harddrive Update Thread .

    There is one, kind of, in the Edge forum. Started off with me asking what is the largest drive an Edge will format itself. As time went on some people posted their "upgrades", from 5-14TB, 2.5 and 3.5, CMR and SMR.

    Largest drive Edge will format itself

    can you post instructions on the cable you used and how you routed it neatly through the case?

    These are good. Thanks. Layout similar to a Bolt. Be interesting if the swap size on a 5TB is larger or the same.

    And a Bolt story too:
    My semi retired Bolt was gathering dust when I saw another person post that his Bolt got 5T w 799HD. So I set out to see if I could duplicate it. Got my newest Bolt June 16 2020 direct from Tivo.
    Put in new 5T and got all updates, rebooted and only had 685HD. :-(. Decided to "clear and delete" reboot and start over.
    All updates good but still only 685HD. So I thought that the scema for partitioning - expanded size was there, maybe I needed to start from scratch.
    So as a tester, what have I got to loose except more time.
    Put in another New 5T and went through all update again.
    And OMG, now the 2nd 5T showed 799HD. Holly cow.
    Umm, this is not fake news :)
    Hope it helps Bolt owners out there!!!

    p.s. I'll be selling my Bolt now that I don't need it.

    On that first 5 TB drive, you could run a quick erase from the manufacturer diagnostic to see if you could get the full recording capacity. If it does not, then it is likely that the drive has an HPA or DCO causing the decrease in available recording capacity.

    Sure,
    I did that already and both Edges are exact same data sizes now. Yea, I have wiping software. I have wiped 5Ts waiting for deployment....Thanks.

    My Bolt 5T is sitting on my desk gathering dust. Would you like to see the mfsinfo on it? It got 799HD just like the Edges.
    Hope the mfsinfo I supplied helps you in the future...:)
