Robert - some more problems

I used dd command to copy the Drve "A" (120GB that never expanded past 80GB) back to the original 80GB Tivo drive "A". I then tested the 80Gb drive out in Tivo and it worked fine. I then plugged all four drives in as follows:

Primary Master: Tivo original "A" drive (80GB)
Primary slave: Tivo orginal "B" (120GB)
Secondary Master: Tivo new "A" (120GB)
Secondary slave: Tivo new "B" (120GB)
I booted up using boot floppy. It recognized all four drives and the correct capacity.

I then type in the command
mfsbackup -Tao - /dev/hda /dev/hdb | mfsrestore -s 127 -xpi /dev/hdc /dev/hdd

It started scanning and then gave me the following error message:
Uncompressed backup size 188701MB
Restore Failed: unable to fit backuponto drives

could you help me understand what is going on here?
