      Hard drive capacity

      Just fitted new hard drive to my HD box and very pleased with the outcome. My query is how can I check the capacity of the new drive. The bar on the planner telling me that I`ve got 100o/o is not a lot of help.

      Re: Hard drive capacity

      Download a long HD programme from On Demand. The download info will show the file size. Use this together with the difference in percentage of available space to calculate the disk capacity available for recordings.

      The larger the file size of the downloaded programme the more accurate will be the result.
