  3. Hmm...What is Microsoft hiding?

Let me get this straight, Microsoft has a 500gb hard drive in the Xbox One which out of the box has 138gb worth of pre installed software on it yet has no way for you to see what is taking up that space? My 360 has this BASIC function as well as every single other device I own where I can look up and see what is taking up space on my hard drive, so why make this notification system that let's you know when you have no more space rather than just let you manage these things yourself? Even if the OS was that big why not give me a pie chart or something like the 360 had so I can see for myself what is taking up the room? It does appear they are hiding something, something worth keeping a secret at the expense of your convenience and also a replaceable hard drive...Anybody care to speculate?

They aren't hiding anything, they just felt it was information that most users didn't need to know. Disk management would be managed by software in which old unused data is removed to make room for new data as the system continued to be in use.

They don't want you to find the folder full of the photos the Illuminati have of you, or the other footage MS has collected from all the times Major Nelson has snuck into your home at night and kicked your dog.

We own the console so we have the right to see whats on it even if they think we don't need to know. Some want to know and should be able to see whats on it. It our right after spending so much money.

Exactly what I had presumed, thank you.

Hmm 138 gigs used. Lets see, 100 for the dash and snap and all other necessary things & 38gig for your daily audio/video recording. Makes sense if you get flagged by some OP youtube type program for a certain phrase or the kinect scans a gun in the room, they can then listen to and view your last 24hrs worth of saved footage. Just speculation of course but you asked for such so I gave you my speculation.
