  1. Captures on external harddrive


    Why in gods name would captures have an expiry date on an external harddrive , I've thought my clips were safe for the last 6 months and they have the same expiry as they do on internal harddrive, this is by far the most point less addition to xbox and
    now I've lost a load of good clips because of it , there was no mention of this in the page for external harddrive captures ..

    I'm constantly impressed by the stupidity of game related developments these days

    :)

    So this really happens? Sorry to hear that, I think this is a bad decision from MS.

    Well, I cant have done that while they were being stored on the external,

    I used to do that but then my onedrive got full same as my live storage, and the upload process is terribly clunky and I'm never sure if everything uploaded properly , I thought the external harddrive was a great feature until I found out all my clips expired.

    Tbh its completely absurd , I can see why they would implement a feature to stop internal hardrive space being consumed , but an external that doesnt have any use other than media there is no reason for that and no reason for an expiry

    I probably would have flipped my s*** if I hadn't been used to it already, for the past couple of years I've just been over writing all my clips cause my love storage is full, but having bought a 4tb specifically for them I'm disappointed the clear situation
    of wanting to long term store a large amount of clips seems to have been completely overlooked

    I were about buy a 16gb usb for games recording, and in some way, you have saved me. I´ll be carefull while recording play time.
