You missed out the -o, but anyway, that would result in a backup as big as your drive set. Unless you have 200Gb of space on a drive with a filing system that's writable under Linux and supports files larger than 4Gb, that might be a problem.

A more practical approach would be to use Hinsdale's method for copying two drives to two new drives:

mfsbackup -Tao - /dev/hdW /dev/hdX | mfsrestore -s 127 -xpi - /dev/hdY /dev/hdZ

Please do not PM me asking for TiVo backups. I don't have any.
