  1. External HDD


    I just filled my 8 TB external HDD and was looking to get another eternal going. I saw WD was releasing a 12 TB External for the Xbox and was conserving getting that.

    I’ve read different things as to what the Xbox can support in regards to an external HDD. I’ve seen you can only have a max of 16 TB of external storage, only 8TB per USB port. I’ve also seen it can support
    up to 16 TB per USB port.

    Can anyone confirm if I buy the 12TB will I be able to use all 12 TB in addition to my 8 TB? Could I have 2 12 TB HDD hooked up at once?

    Thank you!

    :)

    External HDD

    Yes External HDD support is available. The External HDD must be at least 256GB in size and use USB 3.0. Keep in mind that the External HDD will have to be formatted for use with the Xbox One console.

    Borderlands 3 took too long to start - Error 0x8027025A - Possible hardware issue?

    Do you have available any External HDD? If you have you can try to find if is a hardware issue in the Internal HDD by installing the games in a external hdd.

    The lack of replacable HDD slot is a joke !

    has the use of external hdds been confirmed by microsoft? and would we be able to play games directly from the external hdd?

    Transfer Data from one XBOX One to another

    You would either need to redownload them, or you can connect an external HD and move/install your games to the external HDD. The External HDD requirements are that it is at least 256 GB in size and is USB 3.0. I have not verified that when connecting to
    a different Xbox One that it will load the games correctly from the external HDD however.

    FPS drops when playing games PLEASE help me

    Hi there,

    just to be sure, are the games installed on an external hdd? If so can you try what happens if the game is installed on a different external hdd or the internal hdd.
