    new HDD winMFS crashes when trying to use thr extra space

    Hi All

    I went to upgrade my hdd in my tivo, I was using winMFS and all works well until it tries to use/add the additional space. winMFS asked if i wanted to use extra space I said yes and it crashed. I tried the hdd and it wouldn't boot. I re-did the copy, not saying to use additional space. The hdd boots, the size is still the original size. is there a way to resize the disk, e.g ssh fdisk etc.. ?

    The pc setup was a windows 10, or should i try winmfs with a win xp on the pc ?

    thanks
    matt

    Put the disk back in as is (ie don't try to transfer again) and simply pick "MFSadd".

    This is a known bug in WinMFS when trying to copy from a small hard disk to a large one and expand the size.
