    "Restore Tivo Drive
    Use this option to restore the image you created with backup. It will not restore mfstools backup file. As a matter of fact, backup format is totally different."

    If you did not do a backup of your original then you will have to get a copy elsewhere.

    Yes, you need to make a backup of your working drive, if not obtain a backup image from outside sources.
