I was attempting to use XBPartitioner to allow my original Xbox full access to the 500GB HDD. I read that you need to make partition F into 32k Clusters and then it will allow you to have full access, making one huge F partition and a small or nonexistent G partition. So I FTPed the XBPartitioner over and opened it with XMBC through the "My Files" setting. It started up as usual and I was at the main screen which was divided into two different blocks. There were 5 regular partitions that I didn't change at all and the only ones I changed were the two under extended partitions, partition 6 and 7.
My first attempt at using XBPartitioner I boosted up the amount of gigs on partition 7 to the max before the number stopped scrolling which I believe was ~330 GB, this left about ~120 GB (If my memory serves me right) on partition 6. I rebooted the xbox and checked to see if I had full access to the HDD but on system configuration screen and XBMC screen it either didn't update or didn't change anything regarding the change in HDD space. So I tried it again and this time moved all the GBs to partition 6 ~440GB and then rebooted the Xbox with partition 7 nonexistent. When it restarted I could not access any of the files I previously had on the HDD, the files don't even appear under any of the dashboard categories.
I have no idea what I have to do to regain access to the files I have FTPed over to my F drive. It was a huge mistake for me to not check which partition 6 and 7 were but I think they correspond with partition F and G or partition E and F. Is there anyway for me to access the files on my HDD through EVOX, so I can just open up XBPartitioner again and redo the mistake? Any help would be appreciated, I just REALLY need to get the xbox to an accessible state. Many thanks!

Edit: I have been reading up on the XBpartitioner and it says formating the partition to 32k clusters, the partition is reformated and all files are deleted. I suspected as much but when I go on my FTP program I can still see my folders and such in the F drive but I can no longer access them. Am I suppose to delete everything and just reFTP everything? I still have my EEPROM as well since it is the first thing I backed up multiple times.

When you use Xbpartitioner it formats the drives, erasing everything on there as you suspect.

I don't know why you are seeing the files and folders. Have you restarted the Xbox?

Partition 6 is the F drive and 7 is the G drive.

Do you have the full amount of space on the F drive now? If it was formatted with 32k clusters you should be OK.

If the folders still show up after a reboot I would format the F drive again. I don't think you can recover the files and folders, but there may be hope from someone else.

I restarted the xbox and went to my FTP program earlier today, all the files are gone. So I thought to myself oh then it must have worked. Now after I have finished FTPing XBMC over into my APP folder, it not show up on the dashboard. Also, when I created the APPs folder on the HDD through FlashFXP, another folder was made with the name "ALUS" or something along those lines. Is that normal? I can't check if I have the full amount of space on my F drive since I can not access the drive, and on system configuration it says that I only have 140 GBs.

How are you modded? If soft mod did you use .06 option or .67? Did you use Krazie's?

I used a soft mod and not sure which option. Just followed a guide on Afterdawn and modded it through splinter cell. I have just attempted to format everything through this guide:

Currently on step 8 and transferring my C and E backups back onto the xbox.

STOP! That tutorial is for a chipped / flashed Xbox, not a softmodded one.

Well too late to stop now, already on step 8 and practically done. Guess I will have to see what happens next. Any help to basically completely reformat my drive to the same state it was when I put it in. That way I can just partition it then and go from there.

If after the disk is done and you still have FTP access, DO NOT turn off the Xbox. If you do you may have a stock drive.

FTP Krazie's Ndure 1.1.1 to the Xbox. Make sure you didn't unlock the drive. If you can, run a back up program and FTP the eeprom.bin file to the PC.

Thanks got it working again after I finished using the guide.

I'm curious. If the o.p.'s xbox was indeed softmodded, how did he get past step 6 of the tutorial?? laugh.gif

Definately soft modded. Just used splinter cell and a memory card smile.gif.
