Yesterday while I was on xbox, I noticed my games started to freeze pretty much after a few minutes of playing. After restarting, it said I needed to update, which I did, but the problem continued, so I took a break. Later that day, it would freeze continuously on the dashboard.
My xbox is in an easily ventilated area, clean of dust, and is sitting on glass.
I've tried to clear the cache on my storage devices as well, but that has failed too.
One error I got was something about storage device failure, so I started my xbox with out my hard drive in. It worked somewhat, but it told me I needed more updates to which I would eventually reach an update that said it was unavailable and my xbox would freeze. Without the hard drive, my xbox only has about 1 gb of space left, so would the problem be there just isn't enough space to download the update?
How would I fix this, would I just need a new hard drive? And if I do just need a new hard drive, will I be able to recover my files on the new one?
