the short version of the generic decision tree to backup
If you want to avoid opening you x360 and/or connecting you x360 to your PC every time, you need to acquire a PC drive that can do the whole extraction of your games. This is the sh-D162C (IDE) or now the
SH-D163A(SATA). You use this with xbox backup creator and no need to even come close to your x360 during the backup process!!!
You need to shop well as some are selling this a bit expensive, but if you look well you will find it.
If the solution above is not for you (do not want to acquire the drive, do not mind connecting to your x360 every time...) then your choices are the following:
Hitachi owner: connect your drive to your pc and get the ss.bin with getss or xbox backup creator; get the game partition using wxripper (see tutorial
) with a PC Drive (You may
need to disassemble the drive). Merge with ssmerger.
Samsung owner: can use the hitachi method above, or use better use xbox backup creator to extract the entire image.
