FATXplorer v3.0 Beta Released

FATXplorer v3.0 Beta

FATXplorer is a simple explorer of storage devices for Xbox 360 consoles, the tool has been optimized for speed and simplicity of use.

The tool supports a wide range of devices with no capacity limit on Xbox 360, namely:

- XDK hard drives (XDK) for Retail consoles and development.
- Xbox 360 internal and external memory drives.
- Xbox 360 USB devices.
- Partition files.

With full support for each partition on a multitude of devices, you can discover hidden system files, reformat devices, and even speed up the Xbox LIVE experience with optimized system folders.

The files contained in the console are organized in a binary format not recognizable by any operating system. FATXplorer fills this gap and provides the access key to all data, as well as to game saves.

FATXplorer v2.5 worked with .NET Framework and FATXplorer v3.0 works on something new: .NET Core (3.1), it is very likely that the .NET Core 3.1 runtime is not installed (Windows Update does not provide it ), so you need to download and install it yourself for beta to work.

Changelog 3.0 Beta

- The original Xbox support! A lot of work has been done to ensure that EVERYTHING is fully supported. If something seems to be missing, please report it.
- Support for standard hard drives, retail and XDK hard drives - all sizes and partitions. F & G drives are also supported on large drives that have them (10 GB and above).
- Support for Homebrew hard drives - all sizes and partitions. These are hard disks configured with partition tables.
- Memory / USB units formatted in memory units
- Dump / image files
- The cache partitions of the Xbox 360 can now be explored (when they are in FATX format, which depends on the title that triggered its creation).
- Added support for a few other Xbox 360 XDK hard drive partitions: Partition3, MuEmulation0, MuEmulation1. We don't know if they are in FATX format, but they will appear if they are. In addition, they appear to be obsolete and can only be found on very old hard drives.
- 4K sector support. OEM discs do not use 4K sectors, but any disc purchased in recent years will likely be 4K. For those discs that people choose to use with their Xbox, FATXplorer will use the 4K sector size for all reads and writes for increased performance.
- A complete overhaul of the user interface and the underlying code, using a new font (Segoe UI), SVGs and a .NET kernel.
- Light and dark mode, with an option of automatic synchronization with the default mode of your Windows application.
- 7 different user interface colors to choose from.
- New "Show Log" buttons for device detection and global display. This can help you understand why your devices aren't showing up, or help diagnose other issues.
- When selecting a partition to mount, most of them now have descriptions to help you understand what's inside each of them.
- Devices / partitions can now be mounted read-only to avoid accidental / unintentional writing.
- New section of advanced information when loading discs. You can see the health / SMART values ​​of your drive.
- The driver can now be uninstalled in the application by hovering over the "Driver": Installed "button in the status bar and clicking on" Uninstall ".
- A very improved integration / assembly pilot. It basically works the same way as in version 2.5, but there are several technical points to note:
- There have been many improvements in terms of stability and performance. It should also work better in modern versions of Windows.
- Mounted disks are now assigned a unique GUID which should be unique per partition until it is reformatted. Some applications may use GUIDs for various purposes.
- File IDs have been implemented. Application developers may find this useful. - Each ID is guaranteed to be unique, but the IDs will change if the item is moved to a different directory. In addition, if an item is deleted and a new item internally overwrites the deleted item, the new item will take the ID of the deleted item.
- Volume IDs, which were previously generated randomly by mount, should now be unique per partition until it is reformatted. Some applications may use volume identifiers for various purposes.
- Mounted disks will now display FATX16 or FATX32 as the file system instead of FATX only.
- Certain attributes will remain unchanged if you define them.
OG Xbox: Read only, hidden, system, archive
- Xbox 360: Hidden - (The attributes are reduced compared to the Xbox OG)
