A HDD that is larger than 127GB requires enabling and formatting the G partition which as a result causes you to lose the Z partition which is used for cache. How does not having a Z partition affect an Xbox's real world performance and functionality?

Nothing you said is accurate or true. You can have a much bigger partition (F) than 127gb and G does not replace anything.

You're right, I messed this question up badly. I accidentally mixed in some info about the boXplorer G partition patch which makes you "sacrifice Z drive functionality". I also know you can have a F partition of ~1TB without using a G partition at all (of course your Xbox must support LBA48 to go over 137GB). I don't know where my brain was at when I was writing this, obviously not in my skull.


Can I delete my useless post? I just signed up a few hours ago and I can't find an obvious "delete/remove post" option.
