Advertisements The drive is a Maxtor D540X-4G 120GB. Mfg. Date: 15Jul2002. Sounds around the time I installed it. I don't have the original drive. Not with the tivo software on anyway. Before I run MakeTivoBootable, is it worth me backing up the drive? I have a lifetime sub. Is that information stored on the hard drive and if so what happens if I can't restore it? Would it be safer for me to upgrade the drive and keep this one as a backup? Just thinking out loud before I dive in.
