My brother is leaving for college and he took his xbox with him. Thinking ahead I bought my own and started to transfer my game saves from his xbox to mine using a 4 gb flash drive as the intermediate. During the transfer, it asked me if I wanted to overwrite my profile. I clicked no and after the successful transfer i checked my flash drive and it contained my profile still. So, to make more room I went to delete the profile and it asked me if I wanted to delete the profile or the profile and all related files. Unfortunately I clicked the latter one and it deleted every save game I had.
Long story short, I lost everything except my gamertag which I got from recover gamertag. After the incident, I started to do strenuous research resulting in a couple finds including
I have made sure I didnt overwrite my lost data, and still nothing is working. I rather not pay money, mod my xbox (as i just got it) ,or actually break open my hardrive. Thanks for your time and patience.
