Hello its me again with another problem
I recently purchased a 750GB hard drive. Installed it onto the xbox. Enabled G: drive, and tried to partation it with xboxpartioner. I have two main problems
I enable G: drive: but on file explorer it does not come up (Instead i have a V drive for some reason)
Also all the space goes into the F: drive. For some reason i can not partation G drive.
I used xbox partioner before with many 500gb hard drives and it worked fine. But what seems to be the problem with this 750GB.
I also enabled G: drive in both dashboards Unleash X, and evox, no luck.
any help would be great.

Well you really should use xboxhd maker but that has to be done on your pc which is the way it should be done i think because its the only way ive got anything over a 320gb drive to partition right and it needs to be set to a smaller cluster size i think im not sure or larger i really havnt messed with many very high capacity drives. But try that it may or may not work or if you do not want to do that i have nothing i can think of at the moment.

Thanks for the reply ratt. I used that, xboxhdm to build the hard drive. Anything over 320GB needs to be formatted with 32k. I could format the hard drive but only the F: drive, for some reason I it wont pick up G: drive, even though I allow it, using both evox and unleashx. And when i modded it, i used .67 patcher

well realg, try dumping the drive and doing a from scratch install, NOT using the F or G drives when you make the drive
dump the xbpartitioner.xbe onto the E drive and go from there
you can safely have 512gb on your F drive with 32k cluster size
the G can be 16k cuase it will be under 32k

okay i fixed the problem. I remodded it, and set it to .67 (for some reason why I tried that with extras it didnt work)
I formatted F: and G: with 32K.
I tried to split F; and G: to have the same partion size but it didnt work.
So now I am left with
F: 123GB (Formatted with 32K)
G: 584GB (Formatted with 32k)
My question is am I going to get any data corruption?

data corruption comes from the clusters

16k clusters support partions UP TO but not past 256gb
32k supports 512gb

so yes you will get data corruption on your G drive

use xbpartioner to format F to 500gb 32k
throw the rest onto g with 16k clusters

thats perfectly fine
as long as its 32k and not over 512 per partion you wont have corruption
