    Hello there,

    I have a question about the speed in which Xtaf can read/write to a 360 hard disk. I am transferring data from an old style hard disk (in that long case with the proprietary SATA connector) to a new style hard disk (regular SATA connector) for a friend. Both disks are connected to my computer using E-SATA ports, and the storage controller reports them working at a 3 GB/s link speed (nope won't be data speed ;)).

    I first exported the save data for his account, I didn't notice the performance of reading this as it was only 40 MB. Writing it to the new HD did take a while though. The low performance didn't occur to me until exporting the neutral account data (downloaded games, installed games from disc, etc.). It took over 2 hours to read 37.2 GB. Not sure how long it took to write this to the new disk, it's been going for 4 hours now. Going to leave it overnight.

    I opened Windows' performance monitor (Windows 7 x64 btw) to check how fast Xtaf was writing. At the start of the 'Inject folder' operation it was running at around 800 kBytes/second. Pretty slow for a hard disk on a SATA link, but I thought maybe it'll get quicker as it gets into it. As it got more into either reading from the old or writing to the new disk, the speed crept to around only 40 kBytes/second within 2 minutes into the job. There must be something wrong, no hard disk should be writing this slowly.

    First thing I did was check the storage controller options in my BIOS. I noticed they were operating in IDE mode, so I changed them to AHCI to see if that improved things -- didn't. I have also tried on my other computer (E-SATA / AHCI), only a slight improvement at the start of the job. It started at 2 MBytes/second but then dropped to 40 kBytes/second within a few minutes.

    I don't like to place blame especially as this tool has been written and provided to us for free, but I was wondering if this is a known issue or isn't a big task to fix/improve. I could also guess performance is a price to pay if Xtaf has to do a lot of proprietary formatting for everything it reads/writes on an Xbox storage volume.

    Could be related: During the 40 kBytes/second writing speed the performance monitor also reports around 500 kBytes/second. Not sure if its' normal to be reading 12 and a half times more data than its' writing when the primary operation is to write.

    Though I do have a concern about performance, thank you for giving Xtaf out of your own time. It very much does do the job it claims to. I booted up my friends' new Xbox with the new HDD just with his account data (no neutral account data) and the import appeared to be perfect. :)

    Old one is a 120 GB disk, the new one doesn't say but it appears to be 250 GB. I'll have a go at Xplorer 360, thanks.

    Edit: Looks like Xplorer 360 can't read the data partition. It appears blank :(
    Edit2: Looks like I needed that patched one on page 2 of Google for 250 GB disks (can't post URL). Currently writing at 45 mBytes/second :D

    Thank you good sir :)

    There are different versions for xplorer360. you should use the 120gb version for the 120gb drive and the 250gb version for the 250gb hard drive.

    For hard drives i would now personally use Party Buffalo Drive Explorer, the performance is a lot better with hard drives in my experience. The app also has a nice user interface to help you identify what exactly is on your hard drive.

    I'm trying to recover some files I deleted off my xbox 360 hard drive by accident, but I'm having trouble getting usbxtafgui 44 to work. When I try to open up my hard drive, it freezes up. I let it sit overnight once, and it still wasn't responding in the morning. I tried opening up a .img of my hard drive I made earlier with no luck. I have Microsoft .NET framework 4 installed, and I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium. Also, it may be worth mentioning that my hard drive was refurbished, and the person who did it biffed on the partitioning (I can't play original xbox games until I fix that, only 360 games). Any help would be much appreciated, as the data I lost took a long time to accumulate.

    Sadly this will only see any data the Xbox can current see it will not show you deleted data that can be recovered.

    You will have to inject them into Content/0000000000000000/58570983/00020000/(gamerpics here)
    You might need to create additional folders. See this image for more info.

    Sorry new to the forums. This thread has been very helpful thus far but I'm stuck on getting a file on to the data partition.

    I'm unable to open the data partition, is there a fix, or am i maybe doing something wrong?

    What is your D:\ drive? if its the USB drive it appears some files might be corrupt on it.

    Are you running this app with admin rights?
