    Replacing an external HDD


    Hello, I am using an 1 TB external HDD on my Xbox one. I just bought a 2 TB external HDD, which I want to use instead of the old one. Is it a way to transfer to content from the old one to the new one?

    Thank you

    :)

    external hard drive on xbox360?

    It's also important to note, an External Hard Drive is not used the same by the Xbox 360 is an Official HDD. It will simply "see" the External Drive as a means of Storage. It does not replace an Official HDD as some Features from
    either or both Xbox LIVE or a specific Game will not work without an Official Xbox 360 HDD.

    Xbox one x defected hdd

    Not sure it will help current issue but going forward may be worth investing in external HDD for game content and using internal HDD for system only.

    External HDDs are pretty cheap nowadays and easily replaced in event worst happens. Sure I read somwhere also enhances performance but not 100% sure on that.
