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.

Thank You !

    Thank You Broken Arrow.... I just found my own post from 2 years ago and here I am again with the SAME problem AGAIN!!! HELLO Microsoft????? Anybody Home??? You should be able to protect profiles so that kids and such cannot delete them and it should be a triple redundant option where you have to say yes 3 times at least and maybe also keep the profile in back storage for a month or so before finally deleting it totally with another 2 or 3 warning boxes.... that way you could look in the back-up storage area for recently deleted games

WHAT CAN I DO IF I ACEDANTALLY ERASE HARD DRIVE AND PROFILE ON XBOX 360


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.

I erased my profile by accident the other day and all my achivements were gone. is there a way to get it back?


You might be able to rectify the problem.

Was your account on Xbox LIVE? Click the Recover Gamertag option, and fill in all the details. Then allow your Xbox 360 to redownload your account.

If your account wasn't on Xbox LIVE, there is no way to recover the account, sadly.

Lost all acheivements both profiles and nothing will save


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

My xbox 360 profile is corrupt.


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

Corrupted profile on XBox 360


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.
