Switch off the Xbox

First, I recommend switching off and removing the power cord from the electric point because it is essential and protects you from different accidents.

Because usually, in electric appliances, the electric current may still exist during an assignment and can cause any mishap.

Take off the hard drive

The first step is to remove the old hard drive from the case of the console box because if you want to install the new upgraded hard drive, it is compulsory because you can not use a dual hard drive simultaneously.

Once you separate the hard drive case, you can begin the next upgrade method for the upgradation.

Before the previous step, if you see any warranty sticker on the hard drive, then by using the fingernail to remove the sticker, the warranty becomes ended because you have the remaining warranty time.

Then you should know that after removing the warranty, you can not be able to claim it with the official company anymore.

If you remove the warranty of the hard drive, then it means you only remove the warranty of the hard drive, not the warranty of the console. So dont be sad, and then now it’s time to apply the next step.

Detach the both plastic sides

After opening, you can need to separate both the upper and the lower sides of the plastic. So for this, you just have to hold the driver and rotate the upper side of the plastic and then, by low force, pull both sides half upside.

Dont force too much because the hook can ruin the structure and its grip, and then you can never attach both sides again. So make sure that the hooks are safe after separating both sides.

Disengage the hard drive

After the detachment of all the parts, now take a new hard drive with more memory. It is normally available in the market.
