    Heres the deal. I want to install openSUSE on my compy as Ubuntu is getting really annoying [​IMG] . I have 40GB of stuff I want to keep and I have to format the HDD to install openSUSE. My flashed Xbox has a 80GB HDD with 60GB of space, so I want to store the files there. Is their a guide for doing this somewhere? Thanks in advance

    The easiest way is probably opening it up and plugging it straight into your computer hehe. I don't know your setup with the XBox but I used to use FlashFXP and just put in the XBox's IP address.

    Edit: Can you not reduce the current OS's partition size, create a new one and install your new OS to that?

    I have tried resizing it. It will not let me [​IMG] . I am not at my mums right now but is FlashFXP included with Evox? Thanks for the help Alastair [​IMG]

    EDIT- Taking out the HDD and putting it in my computer is a last resort.

    EDIT 2- It is [​IMG] . Thanks Alastair. Will report if all goes well on Sunday [​IMG]

    EDIT 3- jaymz_52 just gave me a link to the gparted livecd. Thanks for the help anyway, Alastair [​IMG]

    should be able to connect to your xbox through flashfxp on the computer. Install flashfxp, turn on the xbox. Type in xbox IP into flashfxp password is usually: xbox username: xbox.

    that's how I move stuff to and from mine anyway.

    looks like you figured something out anyway [​IMG]
