My Xbox drive is beginning to fail which is why I need to get the data off of it. I have a game on the drive that is installed and the disc is scratched, so this is my only copy.
I need to clone the contents from the 20GB hard drive exactly onto a 32 GB USB drive. What is the simplest method of doing this? I have tried:
- Using Party Buffalo but using it doesn't even make sense. I can't actually view the files on the hard drive in question.
- Using HD Clone but apparently I need to pay for the product since the USB drive is a different size than the hard drive.
I have read many forums but the answers on these forums say things like:
Either FTP the Content and Cache folders to your local PC (or copy to external USB HDD).
Insert the new HDD and format in NXE.
Copy the folders back.
All of the replies on these forums use lingo I'm not entirely familiar with. I know my way around computers pretty well but what does it actually mean to FTP a folder, format in NXE, install FSD, copy folders back? I don't see how anyone could understand what that means.
I was always under the impression that cloning a HDD was a simple thing to do. Is there something I'm missing here?
