Getting bigger hard drive soon. Question about saves.

#1MestizoFreakPosted 7/9/2011 1:27:15 AM
I'm upgrading my 20GB hard drive to 120GB when I get the money for it. How would I be able to get my save data, gamertag, and downloaded games onto the new hard drive without any other items?

I have heard such data is saved to the cloud, so I could just recover my gamertag and get the data that way. If I answered my own question, let me know.

The whole cloud service thing won't be available until the Fall update, which will probably happen some time in November. You could either use a transfer cable (costs extra), or you could use any old flash drive. If you use a flash drive, your Xbox would need to format it, so be sure anything important on it is off, in case your press the wrong button. If you use a transfer cable, you connect that to your old hard drive, then connect it to your Xbox, and then get everything straight off the hard drive.

Flash drives would make it a lot easier, it would just take a little extra time, and cost less money if you already have one.
