    The TiVo uses Ext2 and a modified MFS file systems, mfsrestore will create them from the source image/drive there is no need to pre format the replacement TiVo drive.

    If you are saving a backup image file you will need a drive with FAT or FAT32 file system. Neither of the MFSTools boot CD's are able to write to a NTFS partition.
