System Update / Storage / Unformatted Drive Issue

Hi,

Last used my xbox Friday 9th of November, go to use it today and am given the following message:

A system update is available from Xbox LIVE.  If you decline, you won't be able to connect to Xbox LIVE until you take the update.  VIsist www.wbox.xom/update  for more info.

Do you want to apply the update now?

Naturally I click 'Yes'.

The following message comes up:

You don't have enought storage space to take this update.  Please connect an Xbox 360 stroage device with at least 190 MB free space.

For more info, visist www.xbox.com/storage.

NB - a reassuring sign is that this web address does not even work.

I then cancel this and head to Settings >> System >>Storage to free up some space.  However the only option on the next screen is the HDD icon with 'Unformatted' next to it - no other devices in the 'Storage Devices' list.

Choosing this option I am then presented with the opportunity to format the drive.

Can someone tell me what has caused this and what my options are in terms of recovery (if any)?

I assume this means that all of my saves will be gone but what about:

1) My games purchased via Xbox Live

2) My progress on the online versions of my games.

Thanks

Hi.

Just to make sure, You are using a hard drive that is licneced by microsoft right?

As for your gamesaves, Those are gone sadly but you can redownload anything you bought on xbox live (Map packs, games, Profiles, ECT)

Most online progress (Such as Halo or Call of duty) Is saved on your profile or server so when you redownload your account your online ranks and other stuff will be there

Hope this helps

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.  I thought as much and am just downloading all my DLC content now.

Have recently bought (via live) max payne 3 - will my online progress still be saved once I redownload?

Thanks

No problem,

Most games save online progress on their servers/ on your profile data which when you redownload your account should come back. I dont have max payne so i wouldent know for sure. Guess you'll find out soon enough
