    I do not understand what you are trying to do? It looks like you are trying to use MSFR on a 1TB drive, which is not needed for a Roamio. Roamio can take up to 3TB full capacity just swapping out the drive.

    Explain.

    Are you taking the Tivo drive out to get shows off?

    Need more detailed information.

    What operating system is your PC, Windows, Mac, Linux, etc? If Windows, you should just be able to open disk management and format the drive. I can't help you with the other 2 OS's, but you could also use the disk manufacturer's tools to wipe it as well.

    It is a little difficult following what you are trying to do.

    From your initial post it sounds like you are using a program MFSR on a 1 TB drive. MFSR is used on 3 TB and larger drives to 4k align the inodes and create an image that uses the whole drive for recording inside a Roamio or Bolt. The maximum size it can work on is an 8 TB drive.

    From subsequent posts is sounds like you are just going to use the TiVo drive on your computer. If you are, then run WD diagnostic on the drive and do a quick erase. The drive can then be easily formatted by windows for use. You will lose all the recording on that drive.
