    How is the drive attached to your computer, and does MFSR see the correct size for that drive?

    The first time through I placed the empty 14TB drive into the Roamio and it created a 3TB are on the drive. The Roamio booted and everything was working properly. I pulled it out and connected it the computer via USB. I'm trying a second approach where I used MFSTools to copy the original Roamio 1TB drive onto the 14TB drive. When I start up MFSR I see:
    MFSR1006 Startup.jpg
    I only copied a 1TB drive to the new 14TB drive; why does this show a 4TB recording area even though I have not tried to format it yet?

    When I select Reformat it produces:
    MFSR1006 Invalid Roamio drive format.jpg

    Then when I click OK:
    MFSR1006 ReformatRoamioDrive.jpg

    I'm open to any suggestions you have on the best way to proceed.

    I've never tested it against a drive that was already formatted by MFS Tools. Since you have already copied and expanded it to 4TB with MFS Tools, it would probably be a lot easier to forget MFSR and just continue to use MFS Tools to expand it from there.
