      Answer

      I bought one and answered my own question. Yes you can set this up as a boot drive for Windows, although instead of cloning I did a clean install. Am now booting and loading programs much faster. Great buy!

        The hard drive has a three year warranty. I do not believe they will restore your files. .

            Yes I used it on my Xbox one S and worked Well No Issues very easy 2 second Install. You just push ur games onto the external and it will read and write as a primary memory drive. See most improvements in downloading but not actual gameplay unless you go with an internal ssd

          Does this work with an Xbox One? I want to use it as extra storage for games because my Xbox hard drive is full. Can I use this for this purpose. I know there are several drives on the market that are marketed specifically for this purpose. This one???   (1 Answer)

            Xbox requires a minimum of 256 GB external drive for installation of games... If a drive of smaller capacity is connected to your Xbox one, it will only recognize it as a drive that can store media (i.e. movies, music, pictures) I personally use a 120 GB SSD and can only use for media. This drive is smaller than 256 gb, therefore can only be used for media on XBONE, no games...

                  It says that it comes with the drive and an owners manual. I am ordering this HD device now so if it does come with a cord I will update but I do not think it does by what is stated in the description.
