HDD Data transfer failed?

So, I got a new 360 yesterday, I plug my old 360's HDD in through the transfer cable and choose to transfer all the content TO my new 360.

Since my old 60 had a 120GB hdd that was almost entirely full, I went to sleep. When I woke up the console was off and only half the data was transferred over, the other half is still on the old HDD.

I'm guessing the 1 hour auto-shutoff kicked in (You'd think this wouldn't go off if the console is doing something).

So now.... I am stuck, and completely unsure on what to do. If I try to transfer the data AGAIN, will it just copy over what was left, or will it erase whats currently on the 360 and overwrite it with what was left on the HDD?

I just plugged my MW2 drive into my MW3 console. I only have the option to delete my save data for Crimson Skies, Halo 2, and Indigo Prophecy. I must've Moved from one drive to another on the same console.

Multiple copies isn't what I am worried about, losing everything that was transferred over when I do the second transfer is what I am worried about. I called Xbox support and they said that this would actually happen, so I spent hours manually moving everything over..... and that still left my music and xbox1 saves behind sadly :(

Why does MS have to have so much restrictions on this nonsense? Why can't I just move the content over and have it just add to whats already on the HDD rather than wipe the destination HDD. And why doesn't the auto-shutoff disable if it knows its going to be transfer several gigs of data? >.<

Try either; reducing the amount of data you need to transfer, such as deleting unused gamer profiles, videos, music, and DLC you can easily re-download. Or make sure you have the auto shut off turned off and try again. When you try transferring the contents of your old HDD, it will over-right anything that was previously copied. So don't worry about having multiple copies of the content that was transferred successfully the first time.

I know some xbox games locked their saves..... but every single Xbox game I had? Plus, wouldn't that only lock the copy command, not the move command?

Now that you mention it, did you move your Xbox saves to to the same 360 or a different one? I remember hearing that there is some DRM in place that prevents Xbox1 saves from being moved to a different 360.

It is possible the save file was locked to the device (can happen). [quote](These are clearly restrictions MS put into place mind you).[/quote]Maybe for wholesale moves, but it's possible to also select what is moved and what is not.

Actually, the HDD was connected by a transfer cable, but it still didn't let me transfer them over manually, and I couldn't do the auto-transfer because the MS tech said that it would erase whats already on the HDD first then transfer the content over. If I could have just restarted the transfer from where it left off and had it move over what was left, keeping what was moved the first time already on the HDD, this wouldn't be a problem.... but I couldn't. (These are clearly restrictions MS put into place mind you).
