  1. I unplugged my xbox and everything that was on my hard drive uninstalled itself.


    While i was moving some cords around I unplugged my xbox while it was on by accident. When I plugged it back in and turned it back on I saw that the 21 games that were on my hard drive had all uninstalled. They are all now under the "Ready to install"
    tab. I have a seagate hard drive. I went from my storage being 50% full to it being 90%full. The hard drive is vibrating but the light is not on. I've tried switching the USB, and restarting the Xbox. I went into Settings>System>Storage and it says that all
    my storage is internal. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    :)

    I definately can back you up on that - again from personal experience.

    Hi

    ,

    HDD or very fragile. As mentioned the wrong movement can render them useless. Do you have another xbox you can test your HDD in? Also, when you plugged it in was your console on at the time. Try a system reboot with it plugged in though if your console doesn't
    recognise it you would have to remember how you treated it whill unplugged.

    When you say vibrating - is it making a noise that you haven't heard before, if so you have unfortunately lost it. Though please if you can check on another device if possible.

    There could have possible been a power surge that affected the hard drive when unplugging and plugging back in. A power surge can completely kill the drivers control board. Is the port you had it plugged in the same port its plugged in now?

    If you attempted hard resetting by holding the power button to power off for 10 seconds, booting back up and even switching different ports on the back with nothing working - at that point I’d attempt reaching out to seagate. Drives also have a life of about
    3 years so ifs around that time it couldve Coincidentally bricked - but I dont think thats the case

    No problem at all, your hard drive may be under warranty so they may be able to assist you - maybe even a replacement. It just depends on what caused the damage. Any other help feel free to private message me or shoot me a message on xbox

    here is their contact page -

    When I unplugged the xbox I did not make contact with anything anywhere the hard drive, although I did switch the outlet the xbox was plugged into. The vibrating I'm speaking of is a very gentle vibration, such as the gentle vibrations the xbox makes when
    it's running.
