    All done now have a nice 2TB SSHD (1.6TB free to user) as my internal drive. The dash feels better not so stuttery anyway not tried any games yet.

    Tbh it was really simple just partition the drive with script then copy the x drive across from old drive. No idea what all the posts about manually doing this and that are about...

    Will try some games later.

    I have now had a good play around running games etc and everything is considerably better with the SSHD as the main drive. The dash is no longer laggy too which is really nice games also load faster and I’m noticing far less stutter too.

    Very happy....

    I always thought the HDDs had some kind of firmware encryption keys linking it to the mobo. Obviously not. Glad it worked out for you.

    Nope no encryption you just need to set up the drive with the correct partitions. You can even download the software from MS to reset the machine too so all software re-installed on the new drive is from MS. It was really easy to do.

    It was a free game with gold a while back. My son (He's 7) plays it occasionally with no issues.

    You are covered under UK law for 5 years with the retailer. It’s not as simple as a dedicated warranty but worth knowing.

    just registered the new device with Microsoft it's saying 3 years but it runs out January 2021, i assume manufactured date was January 2018 will have to contact ms support.

    edit: found this post sounds like they rely on the receipt for any warranty repairs start date ect., or they would want too see it.

    looks i didn't bother registering the old xbox one or the xbox 360 no record of it in my account.

    Your rights are with the retailer you purchased the Xbox from. Anything MS offer is in addition to your rights.

    Just play the game, will check cloud for save and automatically download it.

    Same for 360 games.

    Makes life really easy to swap between pc, xbox in living room and bedroom, my saves always updated and ready
