I want to install a new hd so i followed the tutorial(s)...first i used the one to install evo-x
http://www.xbox-scen...vox-install.php

worked good

then i went back to the install hdd one
http://www.xbox-scen...dd-install2.php


however, under #2 it says create backup folder but for some reason when i do that nothing shows up under the c drive as a backup folder. Do i really need this backup folder (please check tutorial) because i think the guy mentions the folder later on in the procedure. I have already done all the steps from the first link so do i need to create a backup folder?


THANKS

Unsure how you are checking to see that your backup folder was created, but it's possible that your FTP is caching the listing. Try refreshing. It could be as simple as that.

The one program notorious for this is FlashFXP, you always need to refresh.

When you choose to make the backup from EvoX, do you see a message in White on Blue saying "backingup;)" or similar? If you do, then the backup folder WILL be made.

Check again and make sure to refresh!

Good luck!

P.S. YES you need the backup folder, or at least the files in it, especially the "disk.bin" file which contains specific info needed to correctly format your new HD.

i am checking through flashfxp by reconnecting to the server. I do see that backing up smile.gif thing when i select backup. Also....what files does it backup because maybe i already modified them according to the tutorial that i used to install evo-x (http://www.xbox-scen...vox-install.php) and they aren't detected by the backup program so they cant be backed up.



THANKS

After hitting "backup" in Evolution-X the Backup directory is created and populated.

In it you will find:

Your current BIOS chip contents
Disk Bootloader
Serial Eeprom contents
Current Hard Disk Lock Password (even if your drive is not locked!)
The HD Lock info in Binary.
