    Cool. Then I can copy the recordings to my new DISH Hopper external hard drive? If so what would I need to do to accomplish this since the hsrd drive will be formatted by DISH Hopper?

    What is your recommended way to mount the drive?

    It is interesting that something that should be simple is almost impossible to do.

    Do not know fb or insta if thes help with mounting will look into those computer programmes. Here is all that I see in the help document included with Ext2sd.

    All that it seems is that mounting a partition just allows one to change, add, or remove a drive letter.

    it's more than that - after getting a letter, you could start traversing the drive/folders/files by Windows Explorer as usual ...

    I did this before. I saw the directory names but the directories were empty.

    Even though those directories do not show any files if I copied the file directories Did Arc and Lost + found to the new external hard drive formatted by hopper would the recorded shows transfer to the new hard drive?

    Quite a few. I remember about 17% of the storage space is used up.

    something wrong with the method...
    I would try to check if there are files, by booting from Linux CD/DVD (without installation to your drives, it will run from RAM and the CD/DVD - no worry) and see if files there

    I was thinking of that. Will get a Linux programme.

    I just purchased this Linux.

    Linux is free OS! :)
    just download ISO file, say Ubuntu 20, and burn it to your own DVD, it's bootable disc, BTW

    The one that I purchased should work since this is Linux.
