Hi there. Having recently acquired a 2TB modded Xbox, I'm somewhat concerned that the 'G:/' partition is showing 1,776,000 megs of free space available. Although I'm a complete novice at such things, I've heard that the original XBox is wrackef by some very nasty issues if it contains a drive over 500GB i.e. en masse data corruption. Can anyone confirm this to be true or can I continue using my Xbox without concerns?
Assuming that the former is true, I'm guessing that I'll have to divide the G:/ drive into smaller, more manageable partitions. To that end, I've downloaded XBPartitioner 1.3 but it doesn't appear all that user friendly. I'm totally perplexed by the interface; can some kind person please give me instructions on how to split up my G:/ ddrive?
Finally, I've also heard that for the drive to run smoothly, they need to be formatted in 32k clusters. Firstly, I'm not even sure what that actually means. More pressingly however, XBpartitioner doesn't seem to offer that as an option. Instead, it seems to automatically select the cluster size (e.g. 16k, 32k, 124k) based on th spatial dimensions of the drive itself. Could anyone shed any light on this?
Thanks in advance!
