Question Sky 2tb box hard drive replacement


Distinguished Member
I've got a Sky 2tb box. It's this one:

The hard drive has been making some odd noises lately and looks like it's packed up. The whole box is unresponsive, I've tried doing a rebuild and a reset but nothing. I get the 'diskless mode' message.

So I'd like to replace the hard drive.

Is this possible? How is it done? I've looked for a guide but can't find one anywhere for this box?

What hard drive do I need?

Any help appreciated.

Well, I called Sky to try and blag a new box and they're sending me a replacement box... free of charge.

I may still replace the drive on the faulty box and sell it on though.
