    I have a Premiere Pro. I want to install a larger drive. I have Comcast cable. Can I just clone the drive on my Windows 10 PC and assume pairing and all will be the same?

    I'm not the initial owner so I have no info if any is needed.

    I assume I can't just install a blank drive and Tivo does the rest if I don't care if I lose my recordings?

    I think I have a 480GB drive for both. And where do I download the software to do this?

    Thanks.

    I've been looking in the forum and can't quite figure it all out. Any responses to my specific questions?

    Thanks.

    That's because there's no such model as a Premiere Pro. You need to specify my model number, look on label on the back, near the power cord... begins with TCD...

    Sorry, drop the Pro. ;) It's about 7+ years old. I don't have access to it for a few days. Meantime, I have the drive and simply want to clone it. So the software and procedure. I downloaded WinMFS for my PC but it doesn't seem to recognize drives. So I'm stuck.

    No, WinMFS doesn't work for this series. You need either DVRBars and/or MFSTools 3.3.

    Can a backup be made on my PC, then from there to the backup drive, or does this only work drive to drive? I only have 1 convenient set of drive cables.

    You can use DvrBARS to make a backup and restore on a windows based PC
