April 1, 2014 Update Corrupted my profile, saves and more!

I just had the latest update (as of 04/01/2014) to my 360 console and after it rebooted I wasn't logged in. I went to Storage and found all the files in my consoles memory had been corrupted! I shut down my console and now all none system files are gone. Luckily, I don't keep anything important on the system drive, but I shudder to think what mess I'd be in if I had! I am posting this not for help, but as a warning to everyone and a heads up to Microsoft. If this just didn't happen to me, some support people are in for a very long and unpleasant day.

 

Question Info


Last updated July 4, 2018 Views 0 Applies to:

I have the same problem, I spoke to Microsoft rep., he was very helpful and he suggested few things I tried with no avail. So he told me to wait 24 hours, I doubt anything will change after those 24 hours but it's not like there is anything else I can do. Unfortunately unlike you I have (had) all my saves in my console memory. So basically I'm ***, thanks Microsoft.

I don't think so, I only found two tweets from Major Nelson: "An #Xbox360 update hits as early as tomorrow, mostly back end stuff. Start an #XboxVideo rental on Xbox 360 & pick it up on another platform. That's one of the only new features."

Since the update when i try to load any of my skyrim saves it freezes does this mean i am gonna have to start all over? If I use cloud save next time will this be prevented? Needless to say i am pretty ticked off right now...i'm guessing this isnt something that they can fix with a patch of some sort??

Just wanted to post latest update, I just spoke with another representative and he admitted that the data are gone. He wrote this: "If your Internal Hard Drive and not your External Hard Drive that's installed inside the console has the issue, it means that we can't do anything to recover your saved games. But since your games is still on your account you can download it again on the console and play the game again. And I strongly suggest that you use a Standard Microsoft Hard drive for the storage for your games, saved games and any other items. I do apologize for the inconvenience, I have tried to do my best and to pull all the options in my end. But you will need to play the games again, we can't recover the saved games for you. If we can do it, we already done it on your first contact to us."
