  1. Why did my Xbox series X factory reset itself after I got back from a trip?


    I wanted to take my Xbox down to Idaho with me to play games while I was down there. May I let you know it worked fine with no problems down up in Idaho, I got back this afternoon and when I plugged it all on and went to play a game it took me through the entire setup like I just bought the console. I thought it was a glitch so I turned off the console and turned it back on but it still did the same thing. After getting it all set back up none of my games were downloaded but luckily I keep all of my games copped on an external hard drive so it didn’t take too long to get them back. What caused this problem so that I can travel with it again without it doing this?

    :)

    Hello Corban Langston,



    Greetings!



    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.



    It seems that you experienced automatic reset with your Xbox Series X after moving to different region. Let us help you how to prevent it from happening again.

    There could be several reasons why your console reset itself, including a power surge or a software glitch. However, it's difficult to determine the exact cause without further information.



    To prevent this from happening again in the future, I recommend that you make sure your console is properly shut down before unplugging it and transporting it. Additionally, you can try performing a hard reset by holding down the power button for 10 seconds until the console turns off, then unplugging it for a few minutes before plugging it back in and turning it on again. Additionally, make sure your Xbox is updated with the latest software updates before traveling.



    We look forward to your response. Kindly let us know, if there is any misunderstanding or clarifications of our description by sending us a reply.



    Sincerely,

    Thank you for getting back to me and I haven’t unplugged it since but for now once I got it set up again I haven’t had a single other problem with it. I will unplug it and see if I can get it to do it again and if not then my issue should be resolved. I just thought it was weird in the first place when it happened and it caught me off guard. I’m not too worried about it now because I have everything saved in an external hard drive and on a second console so thank you again but hopefully the problem was a one time thing

    Why can't we have cross save between PC and XBOX?

    It would be great if that was the case, I didn't realise when I started Outer Worlds on my PC while i was away with the intent of continuing it on my Xbox after i got back from my trip which obviously didn't work out as planned, but I do understand why
    there are limitations to this sort of thing better after returning from my trip and reading up on it
