-- Upgrade did not expand capacity (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=181700)


Posted by Robert S on 06-24-2004 07:56 PM:

There are 16 entries in the TiVo partition table. There are 9 system partitions on a TiVo A drive. MFS partitions are added in pairs, so there's room for three pairs of MFS partitions on an A drive.

Originally TiVoes had only one pair on the A drive, meaning you could expand twice. Late in the Series 1 run, they started putting two pairs on the A drive, which is a problem if you want to expand the A drive more than one.

MFS Tools is smart enough to move partitions to the B drive when copying to two new drives if you use the -l or -x option, but you already have a B drive, so you would have to copy your two current drives to two new ones, which I don't think is an option.
