Four years ago I made a backup of TiVo. Now that the hard drives are dieing MFStools wont acknowledge that the backup file is on C drive. I do
mkdir /mnt/dos
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/dos

when I type

mfsrestore -s 127 -xzpi /mnt/dos/tivo.bak /dev/hdd /dev/hdc

it says it can't find the file but when I boot to windows and look in C drive it is there?

additional information if it helps

1st PRI IDE windows
1st SEC IDE empty
2nd PRI IDE New seagate 120 (A)
2nd SEC IDE New seagate 120 (B)

MFSlive Flat out dies when I select 1 and on option 3 it spits out some weird criptic stuff and promptly dies.

Just a thought, can Linux see the file try ls /mnt/dos remember Linux is case sensitive TiVo.bak is different then tivo.bak

When I type ls it displays everything in there that should be there except tivo.bak, I checked in windows and it is all lower case.

My guess is it's missing drivers for your motherboard.
What are you using?

You can try WinMFS if you have a windows xp sp2 or later.

If it does not show up with the directory command ls then mfsrestore won't be able to access it in Windows did you put tivo.bak in c:\ or c:\dos if in the c:\dos directory try ls /mnt/dos/dos/tivo.bak
