Will I lose all my data if I upgrade my hard drive?



  • I'm wanting to change my hard drive to a bigger one, but I'm unsure what will happen to all my saves and achievements.

    The cloud isn't big enough for all my saves and that so I'm wondering if I recover my gamertag will everything go to my new hard drive?



  • When you recover your gamertag, it will recover all of your achievements since those are bound to your gamertag. However, you will have to buy another storage device (such as a USB drive, see steps below), or a transfer cable to move all of your old saves/other data to the new hard drive.

    USB device

    1. Copy all data such as saves to the USB device through the Xbox 360 system / data settings.
    2. Insert your new hard drive, connect your USB device, and copy your data/saves from the USB device to the new hard drive.
