    Me too. My Series 3 HD is having disk problems and I'd like to put in a larger drive.

    Can someone PM the location for WinMFS?

    Thanks!

    I've been searching for WinMFS for a few hours and I think I've downloaded a few viruses in the process. It has been completely wiped form the internet, from what I can tell.

    Please PM me a valid link if you would be so generous with your time :)

    Anyone know why it is no longer on the internet through normal means?

    Can I get in line too? Have a failing HD in my TivoHD, and near as I can figure this software is my best bet to save the TiVo/replace the HD.

    I found that Windows Explorer has trouble down loading files. I used Safari or Chrome and had no problems

    AAwwww poop: "404 That file isn’t here anymore"

    Doing my best to UPGRADE to three new 2TB WD GREEN(s) to install in three different HD TiVos, but MFSTools (g) is too: buried/secret/can't-get-there-from-here and more.

    Each time I think I've got a current link-Dropbox-download things don't go well! Like so many others, I just get nowhere fast! As another said ~ 'the file is illusive'.

    I have a Windows 10 Pro X64 System but I'd be happy to dust off my old X32 HP if that is the better route?

    Thanks Team!

    HUZZZZAH! Wow... I was expecting 'a much larger' ISO file?? Shucks ~ I'm just happy to get what I can!

    ThAbtO, I thank you 1,000 times... and I'll spin this up first thing in the AM (well ok.. maybe the second thing)

    I remain

    You may have issues getting WD green drives to run in Tivo. Power (though not on Green), and other drive features may put roadblocks in the process. You may also find they run noisily. If it does, switch to WD Red (WD20EFRX)

    Hi all - My 10 year old TiVoHD is starting to freeze up on video playback. I'm not yet ready to retire this lifetime machine. Thus, I'd like to replace the drive. Years ago, I upgraded from the factory drive to a 1TB Hitachi drive. At the time I used MFS Tools to move the image to the new drive.

    Currently, I'd like to move over all the programs that I have saved on the TiVo. I am seeking advice on this. Can I use MFS Tools to do this? I haven't found any documentation online that says I can or cannot do this. Just some websites that say to move programs I'd need to burn a disk and run a Linux iso file via some sort of bootable CD (which I never have done). Can someone elaborate on the best way for me to copy the image file AND the programs to the new drive?

    Also, any recommendations on a new drive? I see many people recommending the WD Blue or Red series. Any downsides to these and any other suggestions?
