I'm having issues with my Ext HD, the 630 will not recognize it. I have been working through this with tech support, nothing so far. But while speaking, he mentioned in passing to the end user it looks like a single larger drive. But he also said that when new content starts recording the unit will internally check the drives and will save content to the drive with the most available free space. So existing recordings sill stay where they are but new recordings will go to new drive. And, of course, if 630 dies you cannot get content off of the the ext drive.
