I've been running a modified regular XBOX for a few years now. I put a 120G drive in it when I modified it. I need a bigger drive in it now but would hate to loose all the stuff currently on the box. Anyway to copy everything to a new drive while expanding the partition to the new size at the same time? MFS worked great on my Tivo so I was hoping there was something similar for XBOX.

I haven't seen anything which "expands" an existing Xbox drive.

When I did mine, admittedly a long time ago now, I simply downloaded everything to my computer via Qwix and a cheap 100mbps ethernet hub. It'll take the good portion of the afternoon, but 120GB really isn't too much.

The important issue is to save your eeprom.bin (and drive password) in a safe place.

Then use xboxhdm to build the new drive, and use Qwix/FTP to load all the games back.
