    Nope your console has to extract the files form the official update. You also have to run the update from a FAT32 formatted usb hard drive, i dont think you can do it off the internal hard drive.

    Can I just backup my original 60 gb drive to my PC with sata cable, then install a new 1TB drive and let the xbox format it, then copy my original backed up content to the 1TB drive an d pop that back in the xbox? I don't care about, Avatars, xbox 1 games or emulators. Just use it for 360 games only. My avatars are greyed out already as it happens..

    Its rjtagged, and FSD 3

    Yes, that will work. This guide is simply about doing a proper job, as to go back and do that later you will have to wipe the entire drive.

    You might as well just spend the extra 5 minutes doing a proper job then its done with.

    Its been over 4 years since i did this, however i believe it will erase everything on the drive when you re-partition it.

    Thanks for your fast reply. :)

    Is FATXplorer the best soft (faster, reliable) to mount 360 HDD partitions in windows (viadirect sata connection) to backup/restore data?

    I did a previous restore via ftp and it take overnight to complete for "only" 200 GB of a 256 gb HDD... now for a 2tb HDD it can take ages! :S

    I personally like Party Buffalo Drive Explorer, i've always found it to be reliable, has good features and is free. However ive never had 2TB of data to transfer to my 360 all at once so couldn't say what explorer app would be the quickest.

    Hello everyone, i'm a bit new in this field. I have a question. I had a 250gb HDD inside my slim (dash 17150) with avatar update and everything, running fsd 3 and dashlaunch 3.14. Then i decided to upgrade to 500gb HDD. I installed everything again, i updated avatar and kinect, all good. Then yesterday i decided to format the HDD again and once i installed all my tools i found out to have avatars and kinect patched already without any update...is it normal? i mean, i thought that everytime you format your HDD you have to fix avatars and kinect like i did when i migrated from 250 original drive to my 500gb. Thanks in advance.

    Yes that's normal, you are only formatting the user data partition on the drive. The avatar / kinect data, along with the Xbox Classic emulator will not be erased.
