I'd suggest keeping some space spare - in the grand scheme of a PVR 
with perhaps TB of space, a few tens of gig is not a lot to "waste". 
It'll earn it's keep the first time you want to upgrade - it's a lot 
easier switching back to a working setup than restoring it from a 
backup ! Plus, you can leave your "upgrade in progress" intact and 
come back to it later.
