Thanks lentini, that makes sense.

So is there a web page that lists games that are on free to play at any given time ?

Nothing as simple as that I'm aware of but this link should show the most recent Free Play Days as they're officially announced:

https://majornelson.com/?s=free+play...post_type=post

Free Play Days events typically run Friday through to Monday and are announced by Microsoft through Major Nelson and Xbox Wire on the Fridays they start. They have an advert on the Xbox One dash as well.

Fan sites will usually put the info up a day early.

e.g. this weekend --> https://www.trueachievements.com/n40...lay-days-games

A quick question about storage ...

My Xbox has a an external USB drive attached which only have about 3GB of space free yet the internal drive has over 150GB of space on it.

Stupid question but ... if the external is never taken anywhere (say to a friend's XBox if you can even do that ??), is it safe enough to transfer a load of games from the external to the internal drive ? Also, is there a limit (other than the the number of USB ports available) to how many external drives you can attach to an XBox One ?

Yes, in settings there’s an option to transfer stuff from one drive to another.

I’ve got two external drives attached to mine, no issues. Not sure if there’s a limit.

I had one drive fail on me a while back, so technically removing it, just redownloaded all the games again, so even if you did take the external to a friends house, it should still all work.

I think there are options to move or copy games from one drive to another (any combination of internal or external) so you could theoretically have a game on the external and internal if you wanted and take the external to a friends and play it there. I imagine you’d have to sign in on your account on their machine though.

Thanks.

And your two external drives show up as two separate drives ? Rather than 1 combined drive ?

Yep, they show up as internal, external 1 and external 2, pretty sure you could rename them if you wanted.

You can also set whichever one you want as the default for all installs and downloads, which of course once downloaded you can move to wherever you want.

In the my games an apps bit it shows you total storage, but if you go to storage in settings it’ll show you the space on each individual drive, so you can mover stuff about to free up space wherever you need it.
