    I ended up using one of my old unRAID setups from 2011/2012 to copy the 1TB drive in my Bolt(from a PS4 Pro) to the 2TB Toshiba. And I used the method to boot from a USB drive. I could not get it to work from a 2013 Dell so I ended up using that old unRAID system. And with that it worked well. Although it did take around eight hours to copy the drive. But all the info was there and the cable card pairing was still intact.

    It's been a couple of weeks now and so far that 2TB Toshiba has been working fine. These last few days I've given it a big workout since it's been recording 24/7 from all four tuners with election coverage. Although typically that Bolt is recording twenty hours each day. But not using four tuners that entire time.
