I have recently bought a new hard drive to replace my faulty one. I was wondering if I did an account recovery will it bring all of my game saves and information along with it. It is just a live account with all of the game data that I care about , and I do not want to lose any of the information. The old hard drive works after 30 minutes load time to get to the first screen, but is fine after that unless I try to get into the memory, where it crashes and fails. In simpler terms. If i just do the account recovery, will I get everything onto the new harddrive?

Thank you for your help

Nope just your account. You will have to start over, but you can get your DLC back for free. Just re-download it.

account recovery only gets you your gamertag back, all your individual game saves are stored on your HDD

According to a friend of mine, you can get Microsoft to send you a lead that you plug into each port in each hard drive and can copy all your stuff to it. Or you could just buy a memory card...

Oh, sorry if that's the case. I'd suggest getting in touch with Microsoft then =/
