    Formating Hard Drive


    My console just froze up and I restarted it, after that it asked me to download system update but when I pressed accept it said my hd doesn't have enough space. Well I check my storage and it says that I need to format my hd. Well after a while I do it because
    I hate to loose all my games and saves from hd. Then I try to play titanfall, it downloads update fine and all but then suddenly it says my disc is unclean/scratched eventhough its clean as a mirror.

    I restart my xbox and it again ask for system update and again it says my hd doesn't have enough space. so I try again to format it but now it "formats" it but I still get unformate info in it. ofc I know now that my hd is broken BUT it is only 2 years old
    HD damn it! I need to spend again around 50€ to get another HD because your hardware is so weak.

    But well if somebody has any hints how I might save this "old" hd I am willing to hear it.

    :)

  3. Formating your hard drive

    No, formatting the hard drive deletes everything from it.

    Next time you can back up your important game saves to a USB flash drive.

    Also by the action he has done, he doesn't appear as a "friend" to me.

    Issue with game updates Xbox one s

    Hi Shaun,

    If the hard drive seems to be causing the issue, data on the hard drive may be corrupt. To resolve this, you can format the hard drive and attempt to save content to it again, and see if it affects updates. To format a hard drive, check out this article:

    How to format a flash drive to NTFS on Windows
    . The steps are the same for a hard drive, just be sure to select your hard drive for formatting over another device.

    I hope this helps.
