Hey guys 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 http://www.ehow.com/how_2080168_connect-xbox-computer-transfer-data.html and http://us.codejunkies.com/support/article.aspx?article_id=272. 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.

I'm not quite understanding what exactly you're saying, but once your saves are gone, they're gone. This happened to me once, on the old dashboard, but I only deleted my profile and because of some glitch-up, I lost all of my game saves, though the only game that seemed to be affected was SONIC THE HEDGEHOG. At least I didn't lose any achievements!

Sorry, I can be unclear at times. What dont u undderstand? Thats exactly what I thought too, but then I learned the idea of computer therensics which, in short, says that once something is delted there is a small piece that still remains which can be recovered. There are many programs out there that can do this task, but because I first have to connect my xbox to my computer to be able to use some of these, the task becomes more difficult.

Oh my God dude, I did the exact same thing. I wanted to delete the profile from my stick but it deleted the one from my hard drive instead. WTF! Unfortunately, you can't restore saves. Not that I know of anyway.
