Hello!
So I’ve had the Xbox One and an external HDD (Seagate Slim 2TB) since launch and everything has been fine with it, until now. Every so often my HDD would wipe its self after being in the Xbox. I don’t press anything, I don’t reformat it. Nothing. I could turn the Xbox off and after a few hours, the HDD has completely wiped itself!
I have tried to fix this by plugging it into my laptop, reformatting and adding a partition to it. And although this does work, it only works for a few weeks and then everything is wiped again! As you can tell this is annoying because it takes hours, sometimes even days, to get the games downloaded again onto the HDD.
Does anyone know why this is? Could it be time to just buy a new HDD ready for the next gen consoles?
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Check the drive health as it could be that the drive is failing. Also if you ever hear the drive "clicking" that is a terrible sign and it does indeed mean the drive itself is dying.
