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

The fog is starting to lift. I appreciate the help, the quick response, and being patient with me. I just want to make sure I do this correct and not mess anything up.

Based on this, I would am guessing I can skip Hinsdale Steps 7-9 and go to directly to step 10 and do the Upgrade Config #5 steps. Is this correct? This will copy and expand all the data from the two original drives to the two new drives in one step. I would need to use the floppy boot-up disk to be able to connect all four drives up

Should I make a backup first onto a different drive, just in case? Would I use the commands in Hinsdale Step 7 using the Option#2 (backing up a two drive Tivo?). I guess this is where I could also use
mfsbackup -Tao - /dev/hdW /dev/hdX (would I need a drive equal to the same size to back this up?)

or could use

mfsbackup -f 9999 -6Tao /dev/hdW /dev/hdX (to compress it some?)

I would like a backup image just in case I mess something up or one of the hard drives go bad.
