    I tried to backup a Tivo drive that I used to use in my same Premiere (I had upgraded from it to my current hard drive), using DVRBars. I get an error soon after the backup process starts:

    Error 0x0000017 (23)

    "Read File"

    Is that drive corrupt?

    Actually, it has continued on with the process and says it completed. Can I trust it?

    You created a new thread just to post an error message? We don't even know where it came from? If you had posted in the thread the program came from, it would have been easier to respond.

    I updated my OP. Using my PC and DVRBars, I got the above error.

    That's a CRC (cyclic redundancy check) error, which means that it couldn't read a part of the drive. You would have to restore the backup image to a different drive and boot it in the TiVo to know for sure if you can trust it.
