    External Drive not Powering Off [​IMG]

    On build before 1910.190903-1945 my Seagate External Drives would power off, But when 1910.190903-1945 came on Sept. 5th my drives stayed on.

    The build 2004.190904-1900 kind of fixed that problem. My 2 Seagate External Drives power off now, But my SSD Drive doesn't

    The 2 Seagate Drives have External Power Supply.

    My SSD Drive is USB Powered

    So this seems Strange that the External Power drives will power off and not the SSD drive

    Please Fix



    Xbox One X Powered on



    Xbox One Powered Off

    So you see: The 2 Seagate drives are powered off even with into a Powered USB Hub

    But my SSD drive that is hooked direct to my Xbox X doesn't power off and it is USB powered



    Thank you,

    James

    External hdd

    The external drives the op is thinking of are the external desktop drives they have external power supplys that use a ac adapter that has to be pluged in to the wall.

    Just get a portable usb drive. That will use usb power and will power on and off with the console.

    Keep getting 'took too long to start' errors

    The Xbox One X and S have the same operating system, so don't worry about that. Is this an external drive or the internal drive? If it's external change the power management settings to not turn off power to storage when the system sleeps. Some external
    drives don't cope well with power state changes.

    turning off external hard drive

    Most external drives have an indication/power light when they are in use when the console is in sleep mode as long as this light is off on your external drive then there is no issue with unplugging it, it will cause no damage to the info on the drive....

    Auto update

    If you have an external drive do you have it set to power off the drive when off? If so try leaving that unticked and see if that helps.
