  1. Issues With External HDD Staying On Or Remaining Off


    Alpha ahead ring on the XB1X. This weekend I had finished setting up my Seagate Gamedrive but I noticed it constantly turns on and off when the Xbox is on Standby with the "When Xbox is off turn off storage" option is checked. I've also tested out standby mode with the box unchecked and the external HDD wouldn't stay on. It still cycled on and off for some reason.

    "When Xbox is off, turn off storage"

    From what I have read, when external HDD's were first introduced they would always stay on, so this option was for those hard drives that would remain on even while the xbox was off :)

    External HDD spins and stops repeatedly

    You can turn off the external HDDs when the console is off by going to settings>power & startup>power & startup mode and stopping the HDD drive staying on when console is off.

    If your console is in instant on and set to keep all games and apps up to date this means that the HDD will power up/stay on to download whilst off.

    External storage problem after latest system update

    My external HDD is doing this wether the option is checked or not, but only while my Xbox is in standby mode. The only way it remains off is if my Xbox is completely powered down.
