Move External Storage. (Xbox One)


If I get an external Hard Drive and migrate my game installs, etc... on there  then later get a new XBox One Console Can I move the External Drive to the new console so that I don't need to reinstall everything?

I of course would be authenticated to my  xbox live account on the new console, and still  have my disks to put in, I just want to save some install time and other hassles  if I can.

Yes, it will work just fine. Like you already stated, you'll still need the disc and your XBL account to authenticate the games, but you will be able to plug the external into your new console and play away!

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
