FormlessOne: Um, you do realize that you get unlimited free storage in the cloud with Xbox One and your Xbox Live account, right? That storage management is an automatic feature? That, if you're forcing the installation of 20 games to your drive, without using either of those features, you're deliberately sabotaging your Xbox One for the purposes of, well, disingenuous sensationalism, to be generous?

eldritch2k4: I completely plan on owning more than 20 games over the course of the system's life. You know what I will probably do? The same thing I do on my PC when I run low on space: uninstall the games that I don't actually play, install the one I want to use and keep the disc around to reinstall, should I get the urge to play the ones I uninstalled. THE HORROR!
sammyk: Something doesn't add up. Is there an OS that requires 100+GB? I'm giving brand new 2012 servers 48GB for the system drive.
WalkingCarpet: Just wanted to biatch, I put in a BD-R that I burned and the Xbox One can't read it. Apparently it only supports mastered Blu-ray discs, not home burned discs. I don't get it.
OgreMagi: ReverendJasen: OgreMagi: Why would you need to RDP into it?Laziness.I like Putty, I knew the BSD commandline well enough, but it just took a lot more effort to do things. I suppose I could have scripted the maintenance tasks I was doing, but that would have required more effort as well.A true geek stays up half the night perfecting a script to automate a task that saves 15 minutes a day.
Shrugging Atlas: Didn't MS state they were just going to allow external HDDs to be attached via USB?
sure haven't: GlassWalker: Yes, I install once and forget about it.Having to uninstall something is a sign something is wrong. It means either I need a new HDD, or something's gotta go. At some point, that balance tips to reasonable, but for me 20 games isn't that limit.Then again, I game on PC generally, so it'll take a while to fill up 9 TB.Ned Stark: ...yes? You can get a TB for under a hundred bucks. Storage is cheap as chips.So what happens when you fill your hard drive? ...you just buy a new one??I am really having a hard time understanding why someone would complain about limited hard drive space, and then just not uninstall things ever. Even if you're done using it.Forgive me, I've never run across this reasoning before this point in my entire 32 years on this earth. There are several people in this thread who just think they should be able to just install until the cows come home. Install every game/program ever. Just install it all. And if you run out of room... that means... something is wrong with the HD/manufacturer?...I'm sorry guys, I can't wrap my head around it. That concept is just so... weird. It's like saying I should be able to load up my car with anything. Strap tubs and tubs of water to the roof. If it gets too heavy, well there's something wrong with the car. Time to buy a new one.
sure haven't: GlassWalker: Well, either buy a new one or uninstall something.And there is my entire point which people have been saying makes no sense. That is what I was saying this entire time. But was met with "I don't uninstall, hrumph".
ReverendJasen: I ran ran a 2k8 server on a 36GB drive for years with no issue. Just redirected or disabled every log I could find and ran Apache/Mysql on a RAID array. However, that was definitely not an enterprise environment.
the money is in the banana stand: You could just, you know, use a computer instead.

ReverendJasen: FormlessOne: Um, you do realize that you get unlimited free storage in the cloud with Xbox One and your Xbox Live account, right?So I upload all of my games to the cloud? And when I launch Forza, it then downloads the 8GB+ from the cloud to launch it every time? That sounds incredibly stupid.
logggur: What 1TB SSD did you get for $100? Seriously, I want one.
logggur: WalkingCarpet: I put a 1TB Seagate hybrid SSD drive in my PS4 the instant I got it, couldn't have been any easier, $100 on Amazon.If the upper limit is 362GB that means the three games I have for my One, DR3, Ryse and Forza 5, take up 23% of my available space less than a month into ownership.That kind of sucks.What 1TB SSD did you get for $100? Seriously, I want one.
