    Hi, everyone. I got a refurbs DSR704 from Directv.
    I am planning to mod it with a bigger harddrive.
    What should I do next?
    Could I backup the hard drive before I activate it?
    And how?

    Thanks so much!


    Update1: I did a little bit research. Since I only want to upgrade the drive first, I would need to download "Mfs Tools Boot CD".

    Update2: I havn't activated the DSR704. Should I activated it first? Should I upgrade the software first? Thanks!

    Update3: I have activated it. The software is 3.1.1e-01
    Should I upgrade the software first? Or do a backup first? Thanks!

    Bowling...
    Wait for it to upgrade the software to 6.2, then using a LBA48 aware boot CD, do the "mfsbackup | mfsrestore". You really don't need to back up the old HD.
