I want to install a SSD drive. All the links I’ve seen don’t give you actual instructions on formatting the drive.
Can anyone give me written easy to follow instructions please? Do I need to back anything up and if so how?

1) Boot into LibreELEC (if this is the first time you have switched to the 2nd operating system, complete the on screen wizard first)

2) Click Add-ons

3) Click Program Add-ons

4) Click LibreELEC Configuration

5) Scroll down the first list of options shown in centre of the screen

6) One entry should mention formatting the drive - make sure you remove any USB storage devices first, just in case it picks the wrong device to format!

You can also do it in Android, something like Settings (Two cogs on homescreen), Storage, scroll down to hard drive, select format. If asked, format as removable device rather than internal, I believe, not done it in a while.
