How can I recover a profile w/ game saves on xbox 360 hard drive?
My profile was recently deleted by accident from my xbox 360. Unfortunately that profile in question was my main profile that had most of my important game saves. It was not an xbox live profile although my live profile was created a couple weeks ago by using my main profile that is now deleted.

if you wana say that you installed a game on your xbox elite and run on different profile.it works fine
but as you used a differenr xbox but older hdd(elite hard drive).your profile runs but installed games not.
BECAUSE THAT GAME IS NOT ORIGNALY INSTALLED ON THAT DVD DRIVE,you are using.delet it and installed again.onlt game not save files
it will use your save files.
im sorry to tell you this but you cannot retrieve deleted content on your hard drive unless you saved it on a memory card or another hard drive if you did put the memory card in slot a and transfer it on your hard drive or if you saved it on another hard drive replace your current hard drive with the one with saved data on it.
If the profile that is deleted was an Xbox live profile, then that profile can recovered through Xbox live.
However there is no way to recover anything else stored on the Xbox console that includes any offline profiles and game saves.
sorry bro.. but the only way for you to retrieve your gamer profile is to delete the profile and then log in online... your gamer profile will be retrieved, all achievements will be restored but save games and game data will be lost... you can try to contact microsoft for further troubleshooting...
thanks for using fixya... I would appreciate a fixya rating.. thanks alot...
Hey that sucks. You could try to call 18004MYXBOX if you had LIVE and they may be able to recover your profile also go to the system blade and pick memory Press Y on the hard drive symbol and then press X,X,Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X. Once you do this a messsage will appear saying: Do you want to perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices? Hit yes If no sometimes things will actually say corrupted data
IF your profile is not an xbox live account, your xbox profile cannot be recovered, however, if your account is an xbox live account all you need to do is have no one signed in, press the center xbox button, go down to recover account and enter your information
I have heared that if you just delete the profile, just the profile, everything will be just fine (note: This only works if your profile is on xbox live). Just go to memor, then go into the saving device the corrupted profile is on. Then "click" on the botton that says profile and delete the corrupted profile. Remember; the profile will be a small save and not taking up most of your harddrive, look for something with MB size, not GB size. When you have done this, go to "recover gamertag" and do so for the profile you just deleted. After all this, your game saves and achivements should be present and working.
