Advertisements I have a HDXL Series 3 that I upgraded the hard drive to 2TB and replaced power supply capacitors in 2014 or 15. It's given me trouble free service ever since, until today. I disconnected the unit so I could clean it. Upon plugging it back in, it would get to the "almost there" screen and then reboot after a few minutes. Luckily, I had another power supply still sitting around and tried that. Same result. Next I found the original hard drive in the closet and popped that in. This time it worked. I put the "new" hard drive back in to verify that was the issue. It was. I listened to it while booting, no odd sounds. Questions: Is there any way to run an error check on the drive and possibly fix it? If I buy another 2TB hard drive, is it possible to clone the drive using an external drive cloning device? I'm trying to think of "hail mary" things that might save the recordings.
