Has anyone succesfully backed up and restored a hard drive about to fail?
I've recently experienced my TiVo (240080) freezing up, and becoming very slow. Recordings freeze, and play.. and hard drive makes a louder clicking noise. Going to the TiVo menus take a long time and everything is just slow. I've rebooted, and even switched the power off, let it rest, and turn
on.. but to no avail.
After trolling through the forums and search the archives, it looks like my hard drive is about to die. =( A year and a month after I bought it.
Anyway, after reading hinsdale-how-to's and finding alternatives such as buying a replacement drop in drives, I'm considering doing it myself.
With the hard drive about to die, has anyone been able to backup the image successfully, and restore it to a larger hard drive??
I've searched the archives and found a lot about upgrading and replacing successfully, but wasn't sure if their hard drives were going bad, or were already bad. Just afraid to lose the image on the current drive if its already a bad hard drive.
