      160GB HDD but 80GB personal?

      Hi there, Ive searched over the forum, but cant really find an answer, so....

      We have a AMSTRAD DRX 280 Sky+ box, now looking around via Google, it says that it has a 160GB HDD with 80GB personal...

      I'm just wondering what that means exactly? Whats with the 80GB personal space? Does that mean I only have 80GB to record on?

      I'm just wondering as I'm probably going to follow one of the great HDD upgrade threads to increase the size. So if I upgrade it will I still loose 80GB to this "Personal" area?

      Thanks in advance,

      It means you have 80Gb of space to record on, the other 80Gb is used by the Anytime feature.

      Unfortunately turning this off wont free up any more space.
