    Can I move games, achievements and progress to new gamertag and/or email address?


    My son has been playing on my account for some time now but that is an 'adult' account. I want to move his achievements, etc. to a new email address so it's a family account that I can control time limits, spending, etc. I am afraid this can't be done
    - does anyone have any suggestions on how I can preserve his 'account' but move it to a new email so it can be a child account? Or will he just lose all of the games, achievements, friends, etc. and have to start over if I move him to a new email address under
    the same 'family' account?

    :)

    Can I move games, achievements and progress to new gamertag and/or email address?

    Hi Cimy,

    Thanks for reaching out to the forums. I'm sorry to inform you the option to transfer saved data, achievements and any/or game purchases from another Microsoft Account will not be possible. We currently do not have an available feature. The one
    step we have available is changing the primary email on the Microsoft account.
    You can however set up home consoleon your main profile.
    Note:If you choose to remove an alias that uses a Microsoft domain such as @hotmail.com, @outlook.com, or @live.com, that alias will be completely deleted and will not be available to sign in to any Microsoft
    services. A microsoft and Xbox account are one and the same. As there is nothing more I will be locking this thread.






    Hope this helps.

    Brad

    Unfortunately you can't move purchases, achievements or game specific progress to another account - you can however change your gamertag/profile name if that is why you want a new account.

    gamertag

    If my grandson already has a gamertag name and progress on his xbox 360 here when he starts a new console at his house does he have a new gamertag or is all his progress and name stay the say or does it start all over.
    If your grandson's gamertag is associated with an XBox LIVE account, he can log into the other console, and all achievements associated with the account will be visible on the other console, and any digital game/content purchases made on the account are
    downloadable to the new console. Additionally, if the LIVE account is a Gold account, game saves can be stored in the cloud, where they can be accessed from the other console as well.

    If the gamertag is just a local profile on the console at your house, he will need to move the profile and any game saves/progress he wants access to on that console to a USB drive, where he can then move them to the other console at his house.

    unlink Windows live ID & Gamertag

    Hi Jaguar!

    Unfortunately you cannot unlink accounts - what is recommended here is to make a third "dummy" account, and use it to move your profile as follows:

    "Old" Email

    "New" Email

    "Dummy" Email.

    Move your gamertag from "New" Email to "Dummy" Email. Then move your gamertag from "Old" Email to "New" Email. At this point you can then just trash Dummy email, and your new email will have your old gamertag :)

    You can find more info on moving your account here:

    Hope this makes sense! :)

    Move Progress in Games to different Account

    As others said, there's no way to move game progress between accounts. You can change your email, change the xbox profile (gamertag) name, but not actually transfer that info to a whole separate account.
