I have done several upgrades. No problem, thanks for all the posts.

Question: What is the exact syntax to get a backup image that can be expanded again from an already expanded image?

i.e.: I have a TCD140060 that has already been upgraded to 120GB drive that is showing signs of failing again. I would like to backup the current image (with the current software ver 7.2x) and image a new 300GB drive. I understand that I will not be able to save the recordings but am not clear on this syntax.

Thank you!

Thank you! As Mick66 mentioned, I have been doing it all this time an not knowing it. I thought all this time that the -6so option was used to compress (the -s) the backup and the "6" set the compression ratio. Thank you for the clarification!

Finally getting ready to do my upgrade... from a 120GB to 200GB and I will have to use the shrink command.

Q: Will the -s command preserve my season passes and settings?
(I know recordings will be gone).

Thanks!
