So, am I reading here the drive can be replaced? Or is your Toshiba an external drive? Thank you.
Yes, the drive can be easily replaced, the Toshiba is the current favorite replacement to the OEM WD drive.

Thank you Diane... Is this a simple process (plug and play) or do you need to set it up so it works correctly with TIVO?
Also, can you replace it with a larger capacity drive?
Therein lies the rub, there are not higher capacity 2.5" drives that will work in a bolt, for increased capacity you need to to do the external drive dance, I'd recommend reviewing the existing threads on that to decide if it's worth it for you.
A compatible 2.5" drive in a bolt requires no preparation, it just needs to be blank, then when inserted in the unit it will be automatically formatted, once again, many many threads will step you through this and acceptable drives.
