Hard Drive Transfer

Is it possible to copy your game saves and profile from one hard drive to another to create a back up copy, in case something happens to the first ? Is this what the transfer cable allows ?

No. To make a back up of your save use the cloud and or a USB flash drive.

Hey Gazza,

I recommend to use a USB for this. The transfer cable is designed to transfer data from one hard drive to another hard drive. This means it won't copy it, but transfer it.

You can use a USB and configure it. The maximum size will be 32 GB.

To configure an USB, please read this support article.

To see your data and copy it to your USB, please do following:

1. On Xbox Home, go to Settings and select System.

2. Now click on Storage en select Storage Device (Hard Drive is default).

Now you have the ability to copy a complete folder or copy data one by one.

3. Click a folder, for example Games and Apps and click on the game.

4. Select the data you want to transfer and then click on Copy.

The difference between copy and move is as follow:

  • Copy will make a copy of your data. This means if you press copy, the data will be moved to the device where you want to store it, but also remains on the original location without removing it.
  • Moving data will move the data to the device where you want to store it. This will remove the data where it was previously stored, but will appear on the other device. This option may be used when you have a new hard drive.

Let us know if you have any questions.
