Can Hard Drive have other files on them or does it have to be empty?

Random question, but can my portable hard drive have other non-Tablo related files still on the hard drive or must it be totally empty in order to use?

IIRC when you connect a “new” drive - that is, one that doesn’t have an existing Tablo DB on it - Tablo will format the drive before using it.  So if it’s not empty when you first connect it, it will effectively be empty pretty soon after!
