    Just curious if anyone has heard a reason why mfslive.org is down and whether it's just temporary or permanent?

    As far as I know the only way to reach spike was via the site. :(

    Having not had the need to employ the resources of MFSLive over the last 10 years has been a good thing. Now, coincident with MFSLive being down my HR10-250 Tivo hard drive has decided to crash and burn. I spent over a half day searching the internet (in vain) for the MFSLive utilities and couldn't find any trace of them beyond the inaccessible MFSlive website, not to mention the inability to access their forums which has proven over the years to be a goldmine for DIYs (along with Weaknees). Given its importance, I find it strange why no one has been able (or is willing) to comment on the current circumstances surrounding their departure. It has negatively affected me in a big way. I hope they return soon.

    Tried the link. There are no downloads only indexed. The forums don.t have any depth as well. The archive appears to be a higher tier snapshot only. Thanks for the help. I was able to find a Winmfs download and accomplish my mission.:D

    yikes. that's a bummer. I have the mfslive bootable linux that i had grabbed in March of this year, but only burned on a cd/dvd -- i wish i could find the .iso

    Just yesterday the hard disk in my circa 2006 toshiba sd-h400 died.
    The tools worked great to restore a backup onto a fresh drive.

    Just to save people time, here's the Wayback page that has the MfsLive v1.4 ISO link:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20150218000214/http://mfslive.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1121

    You'll see an "ATTACHMENTS" section with a link called "mfslive-1.4.iso" (9.7 Mib).

    Although I'm not sure if the direct link to the ISO changes over time (in which case the above is easiest way to get to it), here's the direct link:
    https://web.archive.org/web/2015021...hp?id=89&sid=cfc82d35be2fad13f61cea6946c9b2d7

    Yeah. This other TivoCommunity thread:
    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=532239

    points to a DropBox copy of WinMFS Beta 9.3:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/anlboptp509jr6l/winmfs_beta9_3f.zip?dl=0

    And this thread:
    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...3#post10794893

    points to a Google Drive copy (not sure which version):
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_...Hd3NGZ0RXZqV2M

    But it would definitely be more desirable to get it from an archive of the original WinMFS site.
