I got the Green Screen of Death on my HD Tivo this week so I decided to try and rescue my hard drive. I purchased a 300G hard drive and successfully transfered my old shows to the new hard drive using dd_rescue (thanks for the great instruction found on this site). When I put the drive in I still got the GSOD but this time after a couple of hours it did repair itself.

During the copy I noticed it found only 8 errors in one sector. I then decided to buy spinrite and ran it on the drive. It found only 1 bad sector on the drive.

Since the drive was not in bad shape I am wondering if I should re-use the drive and expand my recording capability or will the problem only start getting worse?
