Can I Rescue Saved Games Etc. From Dying Hard Drive?
Posted 08 March 2012 - 04:43 AM
My son would like to retrieve his saved games from the dying drive but we get the HD error (forget error code) when trying to transfer.
I have the bad drive connected straight to my PC now but due to the xbox filesystem Ghost and True Image spoiled my plans of a simple clone and copy. They don't see the drive (Its reported MT).
So I did a backup with USB Xtaf Gui Version 44 and presently writing back to the good drive. Man, it seems slow and not sure it will work.
As a newbie I really just wanted to grab all the folders from the dying drive and copy them over but that appears to be wishful thinking.
If this doesn't work, is there a simpler solution?
Is there no simple way to clone the bad 120G drive and write to the good 120 drive?
I have this sneaky feeling that 2 hours later from now the Disk Image will fail writing due to wrong size as they both are 120G but not identical drives... hmmm.
Any hints would be appreciated.

I guess the image didn't work right or it worked perfect - garbage in = garbage out.
Oh well, if no solution he gets no saved games... I'm sure he will survive!

This let's you download other people's game saves and inject your xbox I'd into them.
Not ideal, but usually better than starting from zlitch

As long as you have the image, you should be able to browse it (using a FATX browser) and copy the profile and saved games to another hard drive. I would recommend formatting the new hard drive, then copying profile folders to it.
