I have ordered a second 500GB external 360 drive. It will be here on Monday. I will probably do a bit level clone of my existing drive to the new drive, then try using the new drive for recovery attempts.
Data was deffinately corrupted or lost by in system commands as that is all I did (the transfer command via the Y button) to develop this problem.
I have updated info on what is available on the 360, see below.
I did have assistance last night, and it seems my saved games are not currently visible on my hdd.
I did PM you, thanks for your advice!
I did look at the files, it seems that the content>profile folder on the HDD is empty...
After some awesome help last night from Brandon, I found that my HDD does have a lot of data, but it appears that many of my minecraft saved games, and my profiles are not visible on the HDD. Using FATXplorer and Horizon, we can see some minecraft saved games, but they are not the games I had created. We also can see the profile folder but it is empty.
I fired up the XBOX 360 with the extra 500GB hdd in it.
At first I went to Social and it showed my gammertag and my gammerscore (Roboticboss85 and 795GS). I thought this was good. Then I looked at the Sign in or Out button and it does show my 2 kids profiles, a create profile option and a DL profile option, but it does not show my profile and I can not sign out.
And now when I go back to the main social tab it shows my gammertag but a 0 gamerscore.
When I go to:
It now shows no profiles, and the saved minecraft games that are not mine, the same ones that were visible through Horizon and FATXplorer.
The INTERNAL now shows 4 profiles, my two kids profiles seem to be ok, but I have not logged into them.
And there are 2 other profiles, one is an Exclamation point avatar and says Corrupted profile with 212KB for file size. The other is a Green swirly symbol avatar pic and says Corrupted profile with a 2MB size. I "think" the 2MB is mine, but not sure.
Settings>System>Storage>Gamesand apps list there is a Exclamation point game called Minecraft that has a size of 46MB. hopefully this is my game!!!
