A good number of us have upgraded the drive ourselves.
Just practice good common sense when upgrading.
-Be careful when inside the Moxi box. Just focus on the SATA, SATA Power cable and drive mounts. Be careful not to touch anything else especially the power supply.
-Make sure you have a direct connection to your router. Have a secondary backup router just in case the 4FP does not work with the first one. (borrow from a friend or a store)
-Get another drive in addition to the one you are using as replacement so you can have a backup.. just in case Moxi disable the 4fp. So you have the second drive as an emergency backup.
-Take your time ..
