    copying xbox one data on external drive to xbox one S external drive

    Hey there gmhowe.

    You'll need to move your games over onto an external storage device one by one. Check out the steps on

    this page
    for info on how to set up external storage. Once it's all moved you should be able to access it on your Xbox One S no problem.

    Xbox difference

    Hi there,

    the difference between a regular Xbox One s and a Xbox One S 1TB will be that the 1TB version will have a 1tb storage device and not a 500GB storage device.

    So the 1TB which is about 1000GB will have approx. twice the storage amount compared to the 500GB version.

    Keep in mind that if needed the storage space can be expanded by connecting an external storage device (USB 3.0 and at least 256GB) to expand the available storage on any Xbox One console.

    If you have any further questions feel free to ask.

    Data transfer Xbox One >> Xbox One S

    Hi

    The Xbox One and Xbox One S has the ability to play games directly from a suitable external hard drive and you can also use this method to move games from one Xbox One console to another one please see

    the guide here about external storage
    on the Xbox One.

    The basic requirements for storing games and apps on an external drive are:

    Has capacity of 256 GB or more, and

    Uses USB 3.0.

    you can either delete content, or you can use an external USB hard drive to get additional storage. I personally have a 3TB external drive to avoid this issue.
