    Upgrading your Xbox One's Hard drive can be done, but....



    You'll totally be voiding your warranty by doing this.
    I'm personally NOT going to do it, but try at own risk.

    The program used to clone the drives to a larger one is Clonezilla, open source ghosting tool.

    This is NOT for the faint of heart.

    For that miniscule of faster booting time, not worth it imo.

    Hardly seems worth it. My guess is that we'll see the ability to add extrenal hard disks legitimately in a few months time.

    Its odd how regular HD and SSD have so little difference in the XBoX One.. Considering in real PC applications the difference is HUGE.. Is this test only Boot times or does it include load times for levels and such for games DLed to the Xbox itself?

    You've already filled 500GB somehow? external USB support is coming, so this isn't worth losing your warranty imo

    I think Vampero was referring to his PS4, which he said he upgraded with a 1TB SSD. So far, there's been no confirmation that PS4 will ever support external storage.

    Yes , I was . I just see my hard drives in my XBOX ONE & PS 4 filling up fast when the games are 35 to 50 gigs per-game. I hope Microsoft lets us use a USB drive soon.

    Considering that the size of games continues to grow this may not be a bad idea. I am a little concerned that when I change it out is about the time some part of the hardware fails.... I will probably wait until my warranty is done before taking the risk.
