Hi there, I've just realized 5GB on E probably isn't enough space. I have a 1.6 xbox with open xenium chip and Evox M8 Plus 16 BIOS. 2TB HDD was installed.

Question - If I used XBpartioner 1.3, and backed up E: (saves, DLC and .wma music) and F: (which has games) could I format and resize only these 2 partitions without affecting others? So for instance, reduce 20GB in F: and increase 20GB in E: ? (then put my E and F files back without any issues?

From what I understand, E: works safely with 16kb cluster size which I believe starts at 16GB+ and ends at 32GB where cluster increases to 32kb, and then enters iffy territory for what the stock MS kernel or BIOS such was made for.

And if I format F: which is over 512GB at 64kb cluster, I'd again have to first save it with 1mb less designated memory then load back up XBpartioner and save it a 2nd time with 1mb+ memory (as it were in the pre-set that makes F & G take 1tb each)

I wanted to be certain I have the right idea above before doing this, I know there's some more experienced modders on here. Thank you in advance.
