I was trying to clear up my HD (in order to install SF4) and I realized that Fallout 3 is taking up 1.6 gig, all save games (540 of them!  eek ). I would like to be able to clear out all but the last few save games, but I don't want to go through each save one by one. Is there any way to copy those few saves to a USB drive or external HD? Thanks.

You could get a XBOX 360 Memory Unit for backup save. I use 64MB one for backup save.

You want the XPort from Datel.

The XPort for 360 comes with a 360 HDD to USB adapter with 360 memory card jack. An adapter cable from XBOX1 memory card to 360 memory socket. (Adapter does not work on 360 console file locations are different)

It might be hard to track down nowadays, but I'm sure it's out there.  It works great.

Hmmm.... so there's no way to do it without buying an extra piece of hardware? Shoot. I guess I better get busy on manually deleting the saves then.  crybaby

You lost me at 540 saves.  I usually keep between 5-10 saves, and cycle between them.  540 seems like...overkill.

I think my save file numbers were closing in on 500 when I quite after 106 hours. However, I only kept around a dozen at any given time and was diligent about keeping them pruned.

Yeah, it's a bit much. But my roommate and I both played, so we only had about 270 saves each.  ninja

I hit the 1,000 mark with Oblivion.  Deleting most of those was a PITA.

What you do is copy your good saves to another device, and then back up one screen and choose to delete the game itself (and all it's subsequent files).

Tada!

you may need to redownload DLC, but that is something you start up and let it do it's thing.
