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
