    What happens to captures when you connect an external drive?


    Was thinking about using an HDD for captures, do the ones on the console get deleted, moved to the external or just nothing happens?

    Also it's still not possible to copy them to a USB is it?

    Hey there!

    When you started capturing your clips did you start capturing them in the external HD, or did you save them to the default file drive which is C:\users\%username%\Videos\Captures?

    I would suggest trying to capture a new game clip without your external HD plugged in to see what it says when it asks you where you want to save the clips.

    Also what do you see when you open up your captures folder from the Game Bar?

    To see where your captures are saved, open Game bar and select the My captures folder, or press the
    Start button, choose Settings > Gaming >
    Captures. Press the Open folder button to see your captures in File Explorer.

    By default, game clips and screenshots are saved in your Videos folder (named
    Captures). The Captures folder can be moved to different places on your PC.

    There should also be a help link when you select Captures that says "How to save to a different folder".

    Try that out and let us know what happens.

    how to manually use the game recorder on the xbox one?

    External capturing is a different beast Smiles. both have their pros and cons. Sure external, you get 100% control of everything you do. Internal is limited to what MS gives us.. but can your external post what you capture directly to your XBL feed?

    Xbox had system update last night now it's not recognizing external hard drive

    What are you using the external HDD for (Games & Apps or External Captures)? Are you in the Dashboard Preview program?

    If External Captures and yes to Dashboard Preview then please use the report feature of the Xbox Insider app to let them know about your issue. My console is in Preview Alpha and I noticed that the last update seems to have affected how it sees my External
    Capture HDD.

    If your console isn't in Dashboard Preview then try connecting your HDD to a computer to see if it's recognized there. It may be a coincidence however unfortunately HDD'S do die eventually.

    Recording 4k game footage gets cut off now at random points (Xbox One X)

    You mean setting the game capture location? I have it set to what I have always used, the external hard drive. Again like I said before, I never had any issues recording things. This happens with every game now. I've been recording several games lately,
    RDR 2 online, Jurassic World Evolution, and a few others and it seems to happen no matter what. I'm using a WD easystore external hard drive as the game capture location. I even bought this new external because things weren't working.

    Hi there , thanks for reaching out.

    Are you enrolled in the Insider Preview program? Also, does this issue you're experiencing occur with clips of any duration and are you only seeing it happen when your external is selected as the default location for these clips
    to be saved to? Does this happen with clips featuring gameplay from any game or just one particular game?

    When on your Xbox One console when you go to Settings>Preferences>Broadcast & capture, do you have Broadcast set to "Allow broadcasts and game captures"? Also, you can alter your capture location via that settings menu?
    I am on the insider preview program. This happens with any length of video selected whether or not an external drive is selected. The only capture that works if I select "Up to One Hour" at the beginning, then ending the recording after any length of time.
