    This should be 11.0k

    and is intended for use with WinMFS


    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/49887720/648250b.tbk

    If you're going to put it on a drive larger than 250GB, let it finish the restore process and when it offers to expand tell it no.

    Then check the drive with

    mfsinfo

    to see if everything looks okay.

    Then expand with

    mfsadd


    _______________________________________________

    Anyone wanting to do the job with the MFS Live cd v1.4, use this image instead

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/49887720/648250b.bak

    Don't use the

    -zx

    switches, and do the expanding separately with

    mfsadd

    Hi thanks Unitron for the help, I tried tbk file you put up, in Winmfs, but i get an error message of Error writing Media Inode 1, It is hard to even find a 250 gb drive anymore, so the new one is a 2 tb Western digital. Thanks so much for your help i really appreciate it.

    Are you running WinMFS as an administrator?

    Hi I tried again with the bak file in winmfs, with the hard drive unformated, and it installe the bak file, but it said it can't do it to 2 tb, so i used the mfsadd and it seemed to look great i put back in the tivo, but it never gets past the welcome screen. thanks for the help guys.

    Try it again but don't expand. Try it with just the image on the drive. Once it works, then expand.
    Check the drive with WD diagnostic first make sure everything is OK before you write the image to the drive.
