    Question about external hard drive


    Hi there, wondering if someone can advise me,. I just bought a 2 TB hard drive to increase storage space. I. Have plugged it in, the console asked if I wanted to format the drive and I clicked yes. I have tried to use some games and apps since then and
    they won't open, it's like the OS is frozen. My question is whether this is normal while it is formatting the hard drive. I am scared to reboot the xbox in case it messes it up.

    :)

    Okay. Thanks. I was probably going to get a 1TB or a 2TB for now but later on if I needed more space, I could have gotten a bigger one without any problems. That was my only question about the external hard drive.

    Hello, BIGDADDYCOOL316.

    1.) You can play games on external drive without moving them into the internal drive.

    2.) There are no differences between a internal drive and a external drive with performance.

    I hope I answered your questions accordingly and correctly. Like my post if so!
