USB Help, and NOT Deleting my Data ~ and Moving data without erasing it **

sup guys,   i been wanting to save my game data/gamer profile ect to a USB (just in case my S 360 was to ever break)

how do i go about coping my data on my s360 to my USB?  some people have told me that Moving ANY data to a USB will actually DELETE your data on your s360 when moving data from s360 -> to USB.


is there a way i can keep my data on my s360 AND my USB,   do i Move the file? or do i Copy the file?  i don't know..

and another question is if i my s360 did break and i wanted to put the data on my new s360 how can i do it?  because i need to delete all my data on my USB to config it.


any help is great guys :)  i just want my data on a USB to have as back up. but still want my data on my s360 and i need someone to gtell me so i dont *** myself and end up erasing my data


thanks again guys!

Well, telling the Xbox to automatically duplicate your savegames and profile to USB won't work. But you can manually copy certain savegames and other content to the USB Stick, but not all.

Your Gamertag can not be copied or duplicated. It can only be moved, which means it copies the Gamertag to the USB Stick and then deletes the Gamertag on the console.

Also, some Games disable the function to copy or move their savegames or certain content to other storage drives. So it is quite normal (unfortunately), that you can't copy everything for a backup.

And finally, there is no comfortable tool to batch copy your data. The Transfer Tool will only move your stuff to another drive, deleting the originals, so you still only have one copy.

What you need to do is, play a game, and save your progress. After you finished playing, go to "My Xbox", then all the way to the right to the system settings, and then to the Memory options. There go to the harddisc, and find your savegame you want to back up. Choose to copy it and select the USB drive as a target.

But as I said before, not all games allow copying or moving savegames.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
