    Try MFSTools 3.2 and see if that would work for you. Use the command mfscopy -ai /dev/sdX /dev/sdY. Where X is the source drive and Y is the target drive.

    I recommend the WD Red drives (not Pro). I have them in all my expanded TiVo models. FWIW, I think that is the overall concensus here.

    I replaced the drive in my xl4 3 years ago with a purple drive; it's lasted longer than the original WD green drive.
    Of course your experience may vary.
