My son's hard drive started clicking so I managed to buy a used replacement 120G for a good price.
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.
