How to get more storage on xbox one
There are a few ways to get more storage on your Xbox One. You can either buy an external hard drive or upgrade your internal hard drive.
If you decide to buy an external hard drive, make sure it is at least 256 GB so you have enough space for all your games and other data. You will also need to format the hard drive for use with the Xbox One. To do this, go to Settings > System > Storage > Format external storage. Once you’ve done this, your external hard drive will be ready to use.
If you decide to upgrade your internal hard drive, you will need to purchase a new hard drive that is at least 1 TB in size. Once you have the new hard drive, remove the old one by unscrewing the screws that hold it in place. Then, put the new hard drive in its place and screw it in. Finally, format the new hard drive for use with the Xbox One by going to Settings > System > Storage > Format internal storage.
