Thanks Robert. Before I read your post, I had completed an mfsbackup successfully to the new drive and started a restore, using the command from Hinsdale. So I'm guessing I now have 127mb swap and it's no different, I still have the GSOD.
I now have a tivo.bak file which DOS reports as 888,000,000 bytes. Seems that might be everything, incl recordings? Just need to work out how to zap the disks (or just one of them) and get it on there... (NB backup was done using mfsbackup -l 32 6so /mnt/dos/tivo.bak /dev/hdc /dev/hdd
mfsinfo confirms it's a two drive TiVo now, and I can see the partitions appear to be correct. I guess it's the database which is knackered.
I really don't see what's gone wrong in this whole process. OK, i should have done a backup before I started, but that's just a safety thing, right? Effectively all I did was the mfsadd command from Hinsdale. Maybe the original disk was knackered...but it's a 9 month old Samsung and was working fine.
The difference between theory and real life is that in theory, there is no difference between theory and real life, but in real life, there is a difference.
