  1. Xbox One S - external SDD drive


    Hello,

    I'm currently looking for an external SSD drive to improve load times on my Xbox One S. I've checked the official support guide to buy a compatible drive and I found these two pages closely related with my question but with different information about the
    drive capacity:

    https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/accessories/usb-port-use -> 256 GB or greater

    https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/console/manage-storage -> 128 GB or greater

    ¿Which is the correct one? ¿Does the Xbox One S supports 128 GB external hard drives or not?

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    :)

    Thanks for your answer, I've seen links like that one but I'd really like to know if a 128GB drive is supported.

    Hello Mr. Angeli I have found a few 3rd party SSD's that work with the console without issue. My recommendation is Seagate SSD's I have had my 5TB SSD for 4 years and it continues to work without issues. This is a powered SSD the uses a plug for the wall
    to power the device but my assumption is your 128GB SSD will not need an external power source and the USB connection will be power enough. The other two SSD's I would also recommend are Samsung and SanDisk extreme portable SSD, those brands have been known
    to function well with Xbox. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Here is an additional link where you can find other SSD's as well https://hddmag.com/best-external-ssds-for-xbox-one/

    Hi there Jose Luis Angeli

    The correct one is 128gb or greater since updates, Buy can of course just buy a external hard drive enclosure that is usb 3.0 compatible and the internal hard drive that you are wanting in any size, Some say it is cheaper to do I have made a forum post on
    the same matter. Explaining that some use to have a problem with multiple external hard drives and a way to fix. I'd have to try and find it again but the current one's I use is these enclosures https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B076X4WWZY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 they
    are a self powered hard drive enclosure that stops the drive not loading up.
