    this is a quick guide on how to increase the amount of storage in dev mode sorry it took me a while.
    Just one warning this is not magic increasing your storage in dev mode will take away storage from retail mode.
    1) go to the the main dev menu.

    2)press the menu button on your controller and it will open up a menu go to manage dev storage.

    3)Now change your storage to what ever you want and hit confirm.

    4)it should ask you to reboot just hit ok.
    You should be done now and have more storage allocated to Dev mode

    I may add more photos later

    Hi tunip3, I already did this and it still would not allocate more than 2.5gigs for transferring roms to internal drive.

    Not sure if it's a bug with my system. Was fine on normal Xbox One but not on One X.

    Tried 5 or 6 times even going up to 10 Gigs of storage but it still would say drive is full when half the roms xferred totalling approx 2.5 Gigs.

    Also not sure if others experience this but 50% of the time when I switch to retail mode then back to dev mode it says 'unexpected error' so I have to uninstall dev mode app then reinstall it then it works again.

    Also roms are already split into folders. Thanks for trying to help.

    Related question - how does one transfer stuff to the Xbox in dev mode? I accessed the Samba share and dumped some stuff in there, but when browsing the file system from RetriX, I can't see those folders anywhere. I also tried copying them to my Documents folder on the retail side, because I read somewhere one person said they were able to see their regular Documents folder from dev mode, but mine was empty (as expected I imagine) when I switched.


    Thanks!

    Open the file browser app and transfer from external storage to internal.

    Oh wow, thank you, I didn't see it. I'll look a lot harder now that I know there is one built in :-)
