Just a quick post to let folks know this worked with a HR44 and the newest version of gparted boot disk I could find (0.25.0 from February 2016).
I first copied the original 1TB drive to a 2TB WD Green that I had laying around. I then remembered about a week later that the 2TB drive is about 5 years old. I felt like it would be a good idea to put a new drive in. I copied the 2TB drive to a new WD 3TB Blue drive. They have folded the Green line into the Blue line.
Both copies went great with no errors. I just switched from Dish to DTV a few weeks ago so there is not much on the drive yet. It went from 92% free to 96% and had not error messages at all.
I did use the "sudo su" command at the very begining, or else you have to type "sudo" before every command. I also added the "-p 600" option to get a progress report every 10 minutes. It took about 45 minutes.
