    We have good news! I have to format my HDD (360)! My friend wanted a few achievements so I agreed and I used the achievement unlocker program in the Ultimate tuts thread. With it being the awesome program that it is, it didn't unlock the achievements that it should of. So I got the profile off again and did it again and when I went to put it back on and an error pop-up and wouldn't go away, so I had to exit Xplorer360. When I reopened this is what I lay witness to.

    (look at the date on it. I must have missed the memo when 0 became a day of the month)
    It won't go away, although the odd thing is that everything still works when I'm on my 360 so i'm making a backup of it in its current condition and formatting. I can only hope that it'll work (which I doubt)

    I think it may have happened because I kept Xplorer360 open while I extracted it and put it back on. I usually Extract the profile exit out of Xplorer and then when I'm done i'll reopen Xplorer and then put everything back on. Just a fair warning so this doesn't happen to you.:(

    If you go in to that folder what’s inside it?

    On partition 3 the only important folder you need is the Content folder, failing that the folder with 16 zeros has all the dlc and demos that are not profile locked, then the other folders contain the saves for your different profiles.

    You say the 360 still recognises all your saves and stuff? If you can’t get this folders off your 360 get a memory card and copy your saves on to that :)

    Hopefully you won’t lose anything that way as everything else apart from your saves can be downloaded again.

    Good luck!

    The only thing I went into was his profile and nothing else, and I was sure it was his profile. The only reason that I would go into the 000(repeated) folder is for avatar unlocking which I haven't even tried that. It did make a backup of it or so it says. I think i'll format it and find out. It really doesn't matter I can re=DL all of my DLC and the gamesaves aren't really that important...except for Resident Evil:|

    UPDATE: I no longer need to format my HDD. Last night I went onto the Orange Box and it said it had an update which Orange Box having an update thats a lol moment. Well it updated and when I hooked my HDD back up today it was back to normal.

    That's good to hear. I can imagine that would have been a pain to have format it,.
