    I am trying to make a truncated backup with winmfs of an unlocked series 1 svr-2000 drive...However i think it keeps trying to copy the media partitions as's over 9gb the first try and then it filled the drive I was saving it to...

    Shouldn't this backup be like 200mb?

    I used winmfs beta 9.3f

    I did the File->Backup->Tivodrive (Truncated) and it resulted in a 8.98 GB (9,644,147,277 bytes)file and then filled the drive...the 2nd time it was at 19gb and I aborted it.

    anyone have any idea why it's trying to backup the entire drive?

    i, too, am having this problem.

    just did backups of 3 tivo directv-tivo units. 2 samsungs (series2), and one sony (series1) using beta9.3f.

    the samsung backups were easy with the tbk files being a bit over 200MB each.

    but the sony backup is ~24GB!!! yes, the truncated backup file is 24,000MB. it doesnt appear there's much truncation happening, if at all.

    i've done a bit of searching on this forum and googling the interwebs and have yet to find any information as to why winMFS would cause this to happen *only* with the sony series1 directv-tivo unit.

    if anyone has any information to share that will help me understand if this massive truncated backup is good, of there's some way to correct the problem so that i can actually create a truncated backup, that would be great!

    thx in advance,

    nothing yet, huh? It's a pain in the but because i think the drive i copied to is bad as well (extra 80gb drive I had laying around) because after install the unit won't complete it's call in/update cycle. It crashes/reboots at ~70% completion of the program/index info...and then when it reboots the svr-2000 tells me it needs to make a service call. I have tried the zip/are code 00000 and 000 trick, powered off etc...Time to put the original drive back in and buy a 160gb...
    It sucks because I don't want to have to instantcake a drive when I have a drive to image off of.
    I am going to try a seagate
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3160215A 160GB 7200 RPM 2MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 3.5"
    This is very annoying....14gb image
