I had a question and could not find an answer on a lot of games I’m trying to ftp to the system. Ive tried multiple ftp clients cxboxtool, winscp, filezilla with the same issues it comes back directory not found? I attached a few images of 2 different games using different ftp programs. I can’t seem to figure out what the issue is. I cant understand what changed i transferred multiple games no problem and now this error is popping up frequently. I have also tried being on unleashx and xbmc and the issue still continues

i ftp'd about 60 games a few days before without any issues. Then all of a sudden i started running into extremely slow transfer speeds using a crossover cable on xbmc a few games started failing to transfer i switched over to unleashx because the transfer speeds are better. They definitely are but now i am receiving this error on a lot of games. I cleared the cache in E drive i am wondering if the errors and failed transfers from the ftp being slow corrupted something on my F partition?

i have a 1tb hdd and 6xx available on F, just for a test i took one of the games that pop up that file directory error instantly when i ftp to the F drive. I sent it to E and it started copying over just fine no errors. I am afraid i have an issue with the F drive. I even tried copying the game to the root of the F drive not in the games directory and received the same issue

It's likely that you haven't formatted the HDD properly then or you're hitting the FATX limitations

some source on the web said:
FatX Limitations:
• 4GB / 4096 Megabyte 4294967296 bytes Max file size
• 42 characters for file names (there are also a bunch of characters not supported , accepted ones are limited to (that includes spaces)
(DVD's do not have the same limits and don't use FatX)
• A maximum of 240 in total folder depth (thats a folder inside a folder inside a folder inside a folder up to 240)
• A maximum of 240 folders/files in each folder (thats a flat limit)
• A maximum of 4096 files/folders in a single root folder (this is the grand total of files that can be stored in any single root sub folder)
• Cluster sizes supported = 4 KB (0x1000 bytes, 0x8 sectors per cluster), 8 KB (0x2000, 0x10 SPC),16 KB (0x4000, 0x20 SPC), 32 KB (0x8000, 0x40 SPC), 64 KB (0x10000, 0x80 SPC)

You could try to make a Games 2 folder and have UnleashX point to it (just edit the XML file and copy the original games folder line and insert it below it as Games 2)

Edit: or split the F into an F and G partition.
You're less likely to run into problems if you have partitions under 500 GB.

i picked up this softmodded xbox used so i am not sure what was used and how it was formatted. I do not believe i hit any of the fatx limitations, i checked and i have more than i thought 110 games. I guess i can delete a few games and try to install the ones that are giving me an issue and see if that fixes it. If i split the F partition to F and G can i have xbmc or unleashx point to two directories for games?

Thanks i went ahead and formatted F partition and split it into 2 with F and now G. I ftp'd some games to F and it worked great with cxboxtool. My last question is when i go to filemanger on xbmc it shows F and G both drives have 4xx space available. When i use cxboxtool only F shows up. I also use xbmc as my default dash but fire up unleash x to ftp since its faster. Unleash x does not show G partition in filemanager either. I have not tried filezilla or winscp yet to see if G is recognized. Just wondering if there is anything i missed. Cxboxtool gives me the fastest most reliable ftp speeds i would really like to access G with it if i could

Took a look in unleash x settings menu and there was a simple option enable G partition? and that worked, just want to say thanks again
