[This is a copy/paste from another board, so please excuse me if something doesn't make sense or out of context]

This app is pretty self explanatory -- created by me from ground-up, and has been in development for a while now. To use, connect your drive (if using a drive), press File>Open>Open Drive Selector>Select your drive. If you're not using a drive, load your file by going to File>Open>Open Dump.

Features so far...
  • Backing up of drive
  • Extracting files
  • Reading files
  • Reading backups/files that are a single FATX partition (such as the xlaunch.fdf file found in devkats)
  • USB support added 1/13/2010
Future updates...
  • Adding support for memory units
  • Backing up security sector, josh sector -- Done.
  • Writing to individual sectors/clusters
  • Reading fromm individual sectors/clusters
  • STFS implimentation (so you can see the game name/file name of an STFS package) -- Done.
  • Maybe undeletion... -- Done.
  • Anything else that people would want
  • Package creation
One known issue I want to address is when extracting multiple files from a hard disk, it will throw an error about the handle not supporting asynchronous operations, etc. -- working on that.

Instead of keeping this closed-source, and having licensing and all that junk, I've decided I'll just make it open-source. I figured it would be too annoying for Cheater912 for me to ask him every time I need to update for him to obfuscate the executable, and then to have to create a licensing system would be annoying as hell.

Quick note if you peek at the source code...
The code in just about every single one of the forms is really messy. Please excuse that. Also, if you use the dev build, you're doing so at your own risk... I wrote a lot of the code in the writing quickly, and have barely tested any of it. So if you're using a hard drive, or anything else you don't want to get messed up on accident, please use enable beta mode by changing the bool at line 16 of the main form to true.

This is real nice, good that it can read the USB drives, good for uncourrpting profiles and moving between consoles.

I'll look in to that here in a second -- see what the problem is. Probably a quick fix... Would either of you feel like letting me on your TeamViewer to check out the problem for myself though?

Make sure you're running as admin.

Is there a reason that it is trying to connect to the internet? does it check home for updates? I blocked access to the net for it since there is no reason.

Will it be possible " in the future " to add to a memory card or usb drive being used as a memory card. with this program?

I have been trying to add the media update to my usb drive, formated by my xbox 360 so I did not have to swap my internal hard drive between my 2 jtaged xbox 360's to watch movies. 1 xbox 360 is in a bedroom and the other is in the living room.

Finally a program that just works with my 250gb smile.gif

I kept getting an error when trying to extract the compatibility folder.
I could extract each item individually and rebuild the directories manually, but if I selected the main folder and hit extract I got "fuck, error" lol

Also, I backed up my whole drive. Does anyone know if I can manually delete HD installed games? I don't need them wasting precious space on my PC. For example, I only have one right now, Halo: Reach

I located it (by the size) in:
\Data\Content\0000000000000000\4D53085B\00004000\D5F8036CA497AFADC59687E1566C10D3.data
The files are Data000 through Data0041
Do I delete the whole folder? Just those Files? More folders?

Just wondering. Would rather not have to delete them, backup, then reinstall.

Thanks!

Yeah, that error message is one of the things I forgot to change for the beta... As for the error you got, I'm guessing before it said that, it gave you a different message? If so, I'm working on that guy -- more of an annoying bug because it has to do with the Win32 API.

Edit: Oh yeah, and as for the HDD installed games, you can just delete those files. Games install as Dataxxx

What exactly do you mean? Writing to the drives? That's disabled for now since I haven't tested much of my writing stuff, and I'd rather mess up my own drive than someone else's. So until I'm sure it's 100% stable, it's disabled.

Sorry for the confusion.. I was asking if the program will be able to write to a xbox 360 formated usb drive.. When i use the transfer data on the xbox 360 it will not let me transfer the optional media update to the usb drive..

I tried to make a content folder on my usb drive and just copy the media update to the drive, It did not work. and when I hook up the usb drive to my computer it has a folder named XBOX and the files in that folder are named " DATA001 " and so on. like the files on the partition is a differant format than the internal hard drive.

Iam glad to here that when and if you are able to get the writing to drive 100% you will release it.

Thanks! As for the imaging, I figured it'd be redundant since the partitions are already in files.

Ah, yeah I should have the writing features fully done and tested in the next week or two. Sounds a little long, but I've got school and some other reading-related bugs to fix first tongue.gif
