                           Xbox Content Archive Tool
                                                                                 
    ------------------------------[XCAT 1.02]----------------------------
    
    
    Release info:
    -------------
      Xbox Content Archive Tool (XCAT) is a utility that runs directly on an Xbox console to
      assist in finding unarchived DLC and other lost content. When run, the application will
      scan the Xbox hard drive for any content that has yet to be archived and upload it
      directly to the servers of the XCAT Team for later analysis, sorting, and archival.
    
    
    Using XCAT:
    -----------
      1. Transfer the XCAT XBE file to the console via FTP, memory card, DVD, or Endgame exploit.
      2. Ensure the console has internet access.
      3. Run the XBE and follow the prompts.
      4. Depending on the amount of data stored on the hard disk it may take an hour or more to
         scan and perform any uploads.
    
    
    Privacy Disclaimer:
    -------------------
    
      Your Privacy Matters
      Before proceeding, please be aware that XCAT is designed to scan your Xbox hard drive for
      the purpose of archiving. During this process, XCAT may identify and upload files that
      are not currently archived.
    
      What We Collect
      XCAT automatically uploads unarchived files discovered during the scan as well as unique
      console identifiers. No other data is collected or uploaded without your direct action.
    
      Your Choices
      You have control over your data. If you do not wish to have any unarchived files uploaded,
      please exit this application by selecting the option below. By choosing to continue, you
      are consenting to the automatic upload of these files.
    
      Consent and Authorization
      By continuing with XCAT, you grant the XCAT development team the authority to handle the
      uploaded files. It is your responsibility to ensure that these files do not contain any
      sensitive, private information or unlawful content.

    Hi Harcroft, Just running XCAT on a newly built HDD and so far I'm at 397 files indexed (1%) and I have 86 files newly archived!

    I'm surprised at this because everything on this HDD was obtained from the Internet only recently.
    Im curious now if there is any way for me to see exactly what the content is that it has found?

    XCAT will hash the following locations and folders in this order:

    • C:\
    • E:\
    • F:\apps\
    • F:\applications\
    • F:\games\
    • G:\apps\
    • G:\applications\
    • G:\games\
    • X:\
    • Y:\
    • Z:\
    Early on during the scan it's likely finding your savedgames in E:\UDATA\
    If you have a lot of Redump or other clean game rips on your HDD XCAT will scan those but wont upload any of them.
    The next update for XCAT will showing what file it's currently processing. As for seeing exactly what's on your HDD, you have access to your hard drive, you can look at the contents at any time.
    There may be a future option to download a report of any new files uploaded, but it's not a high priority yet.

    XCAT update v1.02 is live now!
    The long pause between uploaded batches of files is fixed and there's now a display showing what file you are currently uploading.

    Currently at 300 files newly archived and still uploading right now, albeit slowly. Neat tool

    Hello. Really appreciate the work you're doing to get DLC archived. Just wanted to say that Xcat 1.02 is crashing my Wifi. I have my Xbox connected thru an ethernet powerline to my router. At one exact point in the hashing/uploading, at a very specific bite number, Xcat will crash my Xfinity wifi. All devices lose connection and I have to restart my router. I have tested it multiple times to confirm it is Xcat. Hopefully this is helpful. Thanks.

    I talked to the lead dev and the only idea we had was your ISP performing deep packet inspection and getting overwhelmed by the high number of small files.The lead dev is working on TLS support which would fix that issue if that's what the cause is. We're still not sure if that's the issue at all, but we'll keep looking at it.

    If you think you have something important on your console you can always submit your drive dump manually to me the old way.

    Thanks for trying it out.

    The XCAT services are not down. The back end is rejecting your virtual EEPROM as an invalid console.

    Update your softmod to not use a virtual EEPROM and XCAT will work fine.
