2. Adding More Hours > 25. Restoring from Backup

Restoring from Backup

Restore your TiVo’s software from backup, whether for disaster recovery or for expanding capacity.

There are two times when restoring a backup is necessary: either you are replacing your existing drive(s) with a new hard drive (or drives), or you are repairing a corrupt TiVo hard drive.

You’ll need a backup in hand, whether your own or one that you’ve managed to convince somebody else to give you.

Warning

Although absolutely not recommended, if you do get a backup from another TiVo to restore to yours, make sure that the backup comes from the same model TiVo. If you don’t, disaster is sure to strike.

Restoring this backup will make the TiVo look just like it did when the backup was made; all your Season Passes and other options (not recorded programming, however) will be restored from deep sleep right onto your drive. If you are restoring your backup onto a drive or drives that have more space that the original drive, then you are going to use all that capacity.
