    xbox 1 storage


    To free up space on the internal HD,

    i have transferred my games to external HD. Easy enough.

    So i deleted the games on the internal HD.

    Mistake!

    It deleted the games on external HD as well?

    Which sux, so i have re download the games to external HD,

    but it is showing that the data is downloading to both external and internal?

    The purpose was to free space on internal by transferring data to external.

    So why is the internal HD taking on data when everything is being downloaded to the external HD?

    thx.

    :)

    Manufacturers usually round up on the amount of storage space on hard drive (any hard drive you buy, not just the ones in an Xbox) so they actually have less space on them than what is listed. Plus the Xbox hard drive have system files on them that take
    up part of the hard drive as well.

    You are using transfer, which is to move the contents of your internal hard drive to the external hard drive instead of copying, you do not need to manually delete the contents of the internal hard drive (because they are already on the external hard drive).

    You should be able to specify which hard drive you want new games and apps to install to.

    Here is some info on HDDs. https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/console/manage-storage

    Also, once you have what you want on the external hard drive, unplug it and delete what you don't want on the internal one. I have never heard of games installing on two hard drives at once though.

    My games were free (xbox live download) but when i try to uninstall and reinstall it says i need to pay money

    1. Go to Settings (Xbox).
    2. Choose CD/blueray, then Persistent storage, select clear persistent storage.

    see if this helps. thanks
