I bought a dual external hard drive and just installed a 500 gb hard drive in it. I plan on ordering another one later this week. I did plug in the hard drive to my 622 and it reformatted the hard drive. When I install the 2nd hard drive, I assume it will do the same.

My question is, should I wait to move any recordings to the external hard drive until I get the new hard drive? I would hate to lose any recordings I move on there when I get the second one installed.

Also, does anyone know how much time a 500 gb hard drive holds? Thanks. :)

If you have an external drive case that has two hard drives in it, Dish has expressedly stated that these will not work properly as EHD's - one physical drive per USB connection.
