What is Microsoft trying to hide from me??

#1RyanJMcDPosted 11/29/2013 7:44:59 PM
I was trying to find the list of storage space used and I can't seem to find any. From reading some MS message boards is seems to be that "If you are getting a notification that you are low on space, then you need to delete something. If there is no notification, you have enough space, so don't worry about it"

WTF? I can't find out how much space I have until I am almost out?

Also the insructions say if I want to delete a saved game, I need to go into the game itself and do it that way. Why can't I just go into the storage settings and delete a bunch of old crap at once without having to start up 6 different games?

And what happens if I don't have the game anymore. If I can't start the game, how am I supposed to go into the game to delete old saves and patches and whatnot?

Why is MS so concerned about not letting me see what's in storage?

Saves are on the cloud I believe. And I can only assume patches would be wiped if you uninstall a game. I don't like that I can't see everything on my hard drive but it's not a huge deal. As long as I can delete large files like game installs whenever I want, I'm ok.

Yeah, it is kinda BS that you can't manage your storage yourself. But hopefully they add to the dashboard through a future update, but I hope it isn't to far off.

Read that.


Also, you dont need to "start up 6 different games" to do anything. Go highlight the game that you want deleted, the same way you would if you wanted to play it, but instead of clicking on the game, press start and delete the game. No "starting up" anything.

Where does it save it at if you are offline?

If LeBron shoots below 56 percent for the regular(obviously) season(2013-14) I'll close my account.

To the hard drive obviously.

Your data is stored to both your hard drive and the cloud simultaneously. Xbox Live keeps your important data in sync so you donít lose anything when you use a friend or family memberís console, or even when you switch to a new console.

That's what I figured. Otherwise it'd be ridiculous.

Can I use a flash drive or an external hard drive?

No. The Xbox One does not support external storage devices.


I don't like that it says this at the bottom there, I thought it was suppose to support external just not at launch?

I am gonna be extremely disappointed if this is the case.

Yeah I read that too. First time seeing that link. Hoping it's just a "not now" thing and they don't say not not because that way if it doesn't happen, people would be more up in arms. Still, it's a feature I would like and will miss if it isn't added.
