    Thread basically.
    I have a regular 120gb hdd installed on a slim case working on my rgh'd x360 e and I want to upgrade it with a bigger one.
    I read this in ixtreme forums:
    I guess that is correct as is a reputable source but the transfer part is what is worrying me.
    Can I connect the old hdd to my pc, do a backup with xplorer360 and then restore it to the new drive or the only option is to ftp/usb all the content back?? :wacko:

    Thanks :)

    As long as you do not try restoring things at partition level then xplorer360 should do it, personally I would have gone with FTP though as it is easier from where I sit (assuming you have space on the hard drive to hold what you need to hold). That guide there is accurate as far as I can see, personally I would not have bothered with avatar support but that will also give you that back.

    The only thing that might be missing is the original xbox compatibility partition (or a hacked version of it) if you want that support. They might do it automatically now though. If not find the hacked version of the original xbox emulator and follow the install instructions for it.

    FTP is good but slow(using wifi n, direct cable should go faster but not that much. 10/100 ethernet port), I transfer small games(small being less than 2gb) that way and anything else through a external usb drive. but transfer 100gb of data is a little too much and faster/safer to do on a pc though usb 3.0.

    oohh and the xbox originals compatibility is no problem, I myself added the partition and necessary files on my current hdd. I like to do my homework and ask just the necessary.

    thanks for the help :yaysp:
