    I have a very complicated issue I haven't been able to find a solution to and have finally decided to post and see if anyone can help. The scenario is that I pulled my hard drive out of my elite when it crapped out and pulled it out of the case to put into my new slim. When I did, I ran into the issue. I have the 120 gb hard drive, but when I first used it on the new slim, it only registers that there are 50 gb available. I also can't access any of my old data, which includes all of my save games. And that is the root of my frustration. I have tried using Xport and Xplorer and they both show the same thing. Everything I have added since I put the hard drive in the slim is available and shows up in the partitions. I know the data is there, but I can't figure out a way to get to it and bypass the current partitions. It's making me crazy. Please help me

    I'm not 100% sure about this, but a drive may be linked to a console. I say this because when you format a drive with the console it asks for the serial number. So there might be a serial mismatch and that may be the root of your problem. Maybe one of the pros can chime in.

    The serial is just a safety thing so people don't format without actually thinking about it first. I swap my hard drive between 2-3 machines so no, they aren't linked.

    Was your elite banned?

    Hard drives are not linked to an xbox. You can move them around safely. I would try to dump the data and reformat on the slim and then copy it back.

    Xport is trash, it works very well at giving names of folders and maybe getting data from hd, but when you try to delete it won't actually delete it will appear deleted, but doesn't free up the used space, and likes to hang when transferring. I found this out the hard way when I couldn't account for 15 gigs of space missing.
