    I'm to lazy to retype so this is a C&P from a Gaming News Site. To download the tool visit Xbins, or buy gold and get it in the gold section.

    If you are in the Beta Program the June update is Live and you can test this software now. The update requires a Usb 3.0 drive and it must be 256gb or larger.



    Coming in June is major Xbox One dashboard update, and with it comes the feature of 'External Storage' but the drives are reformatted for XB1 use only, with this utility you can switch back and forth.


    One problem with the upcoming XB1 external storage feature is that it reformats your USB HDD to its own format system.

    With this cool new PC utility you can switch your drive back to access the stored data on your PC and switch to back to XBOX mode.


    XBOX One External Storage Device Converter
    Version 1.0
    Angerwound - angerwound@gmail.com

    Overview:
    This application will make a hard drive used for XBOX One External Storage (released in the June System Update); recognizable to a PC for read/write of the data.

    Note:
    This application requires Administrator privileges on execution otherwise it may state "No storage devices found".

    Usage:
    1) Plug in your XBOX One external storage device into your PC after it has been formatted for use on your console.
    2) Open the application and choose "SCAN".
    3) Your device should be listed. Right click and choose "Enable PC Mode".
    4) Choose scan again; and you should see that your device is now in PC Mode.
    5) Disconnect/Reconnect your drive and Windows should now mount the drive allowing you to read/write the files stored by the console. You could also do a refresh in Disk Management instead of disconnect/reconnect.

    When you are ready to return the device to your console:
    1) Open the application and do a scan.
    2) Choose your device, right click and "Enable XBOX Mode".
    **This needs to be done before your console will recognize the drive. If you forget to do this; your console will ask to reformat it (losing all your data).


    *WARNING*
    This application scans and makes modifications to the MBR of the drive. I take no responsibility for any damage done to the device or loss of data caused by utilizing this application.
    This has been tested on only a handful of drives; so there could be issues. Use at your own risk.

    I will be releasing a new version of the application in the coming days.

    1) Ability for multiple partitions on a single drive.
    2) USB 2.0 Drive capability. (And recognizable by the XBOX One)
    3) Full formatting of drive from the application without having to do so on the console.

    I may be missing the obvious, but what can we do with the files?

    My guess is that if we were able to grab the game saves from the XB1, we can begin save modding.
    The other is possibly being the first steps to looking into the game files, and some sort of hack.

    Sorry about digging up an old thread. I just heard about this. My WD My Book 4TB external hd is acting up. XB1 for some reason doesn't recognize it anymore. All my games & stuff are on it. Did a google search & found this. For some reason the drive says it's in PC Mode. I tried to change it to Xbox Mode but it does nothing. Under Disk Manager the drive is there but says unallocated with a popup saying "You must initialize a disk before Logical Disk Manager can access it. Use the folowing partition style for the selection disks. MBR or GPT with GPT already check & says Note: The GPT partition style is not recognized by all previous versions of windows." Not sure what to check or just leave alone. I want it to be read on the XB1 without losing anything. I have v1.1 of this
