How Do You Move Your Old Data To Your New Xbox One

Frank in Tyler, Texas asked us about moving his data to his new Xbox

Frank asked: “I’ve got an xBox One that I purchased. I’m trying to figure out how to get my data off my xBox 360, to the xBox One.”


If you happen to be have Xbox Live Gold, you can just go to your Xbox settings, then storage, then each game, and copy or move your data to the cloud.

Then when the Xbox One syncs with the cloud it should bring with it your settings, and saved games.

Here’s the problem that Microsoft glosses over on their documentation: If you have a free Xbox Live account, you can’t copy your game data to the cloud, that means that you can either move on and start over, or pay for a Gold account.

If you have a free Xbox Live account, you can’t copy your game data to the cloud

As far as we know, right now there’s no option to copy to a USB drive to transfer between system or anything other way to do it.

Now of course that’s just your settings and saved game files, not the games themselves. The actual games you will need to reinstall. There isn’t any way to transfer directly from an Xbox 360 to an Xbox One.

If you’re wanting to play your Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One, remember that not every 360 game is compatible. Be sure to check your specific titles before trying to play older games on the newer console.
