Upgrading HDD


Hi Folks

I have two Fox-T2s, one of which I have already installed a 1TB drive but I did that before I put the CFW on so I'm familiar with the mechanics of it. I'm now planning to upgrade my 2nd one which already has the CFW installed. Am I right in assuming that after formatting the drive and I log in via the web portal it will be at the stage as below where it needs to download the stuff from the internet again?

Yes, unless you somehow copy the /mod directory from the old drive to the new.
Some of the package settings which are stored in flash will be preserved however.

I have just reached this stage myself having swapped out my 2TB Seagate pipeline HDD which was developing faults for a 2TB WD Purple HDD. I would now like to copy the /mod directory over but as I'm a Dos/Windows guy I was wondering what was the easiest way to do that, via Telnet and the command line with both HDD's attached perhaps?

May contain traces of nut
I am inclined to re-install from scratch rather than transferring - it has the effect of flushing the system.
