Advertisements I am looking for a command by command (a la "step by step") summary to copy my original 1 TB Tivo Bolt drive to a 6 TB WD Purple. I have the MSFTools 3.32 devel bootable FD downloaded from post #131. I am a little confuse as to whether the copy command automatically expands/adds the partitions needed to make full use of the 6 TB. So, I boot up my PC using the MSFTools 3.32 FD without any internal drives connected and then connect my source drive (original Tivo 1 TB) and my target drive (WD 6 TB Purple) to the two PC mb drive connectors (0 and 1) using SATA cables. I am familiar with PC's and Windows but not a real computer jockey so be explicit, I am not familiar with Linux and have long since forgotten using commands in DOS (the 80's are blurry). I have been GUI disabled. I know buried in these threads somewhere is the procedure but I am never sure if I am using the same tool or if the old post is still valid. What is the recommended procedure and commands to get me where I want to be? I thank you in advance. Also, I regret having upgraded to TE4 Hydra (no PC file transfer). I have read that you can downgrade. If you downgrade, does it wipe out your recordings?
