Let's just hope the external storage update (when it comes) allows you to use more than 32GB of space on an external HDD, that limitation on the 360 is annoying, means I have to have loads of 40GB HDD's knocking about rather than just one big drive for backing up downloaded games.

 

Use NTFS on the external filesystem this time MS, for the love of God, and NOT FAT!

I would be shocked if that is not the case this time around.

Since the base OS for the X1 is windows and it is using NTFS itself, it stands to reason that is what they will use on an external.

The friend request is odd.  They do not show up on the One nor the Smartglass app.  They do however, show up on xbox.com.  Hopefully they fix this soon. 

 

To state the obvious, how many people accept or request an invite on their computer for their console?  Well quite a few right now because it doesn't work right.  The smartglass was supposed to add convenience but it doesn't work correctly either.

dont bother with the website, I tried to add somebody from Neowin on it, he never got it when I used the website, never got it when I used the Xbox app. He eventually got it when I signed into my Xbox and sent one from there.

Well, the 360 came with high capacity drives internally and an XTAF filesystem (FATX), so why didn't they use the same filesystem on externals instead of FAT32 if "it stands to reason"?

I don't know, but I always remember MS saying that limitations of the 360 OS prevented them from supporting NTFS on externals. Also, didn't they in fact use FATX on externals when you formatted one to use for game storage via the 360?

My point is that they would have to do so little now to support ntfs via external drives. So I expect them to support that.I'm not sure what the point would be to stick to FAT32 now.

No, they're FAT32, limited to 32GB total space. FATX is FAT Xtended, which supports higher capacities IIRC

That is exFAT. FATX is used on Xbox consoles.

The limits on the 360 were a mix of file system limits and also the fact that they made money selling you a bigger HDD drive.  The past doesn't however indicate what will happen in the future so if you look at where MS is taking the XB1, as they've said it's Windows, and it can run universal Windows apps.   The odds of it using the same file system as Windows devices, which is NTFS now and not FAT32 is high.  Actually I wouldn't be surprised if when they do introduce external storage support on the XB1 it'll be a case of the drive either being used to read off of, for music/videos etc but when/if you want it to store games on it then it'll have to be encrypted (for piracy protection and all that), probably a case of NTFS EFS + Bitlocker so that you can't install games to it and then read them off to any old PC etc. 

 

The delay in getting the feature is, and I'm guessing here, because they want to make it secure enough yet also portable, though that part is something I hope for.  It'd be great if you could take it with you, connect it to any XB1 and just access the content after you login with your account.   It's possible really, they can tweak bitlocker and so on to work that way.
