    I restored image of Premiere TCD746320-20.7.4.RC42 to a 2TB drive using DvrBARS. Now need to expand that drive using mfsadd from the latest mfstools 3.32.

    (1) What is the proper mfsadd comand to expand this drive ?
    (2) Will I need to also run "ampfix" ?
    (3) Will the above use all of the drive or is running "supersize" also required ?

    I have been looking here for the answers, but is seems all the examples I have found are where the drives have been copied with mfscopy and expanded at the same time.

    Will continue to look, while I wait for some help.

    TIA, Beast

    Edit: I went ahead and used the following comands.

    (1) mfsadd -x /dev/sda
    (2) ampfix /dev/sda
    Put the drive back in the Tivo, check storge size, which is now reported as 318 hours hd.
    Not sure if its required, but doing a clear and delete everything. Then will start setup from scratch.

    P.S. Im new here and wasn't sure where the best place to post was. Any mod feel free to delete this thread.

    Instead of creating this new thread, you could have posted/read in the MFSTools thread, or use the 10TB Roamio thread for reference.
