    Due to circumstances, I've recently sold my 360 - Boooooooo :thumbsdow

    Before I give the console over to the new owner, I'd like to delete all of my 'personal' data from the machine - i.e. Xbox Live accounts etc.

    I'd like to keep the downloaded demos & games on the system though ...


    Is this possible, & is there an easy way to do it ?

    Formatting the HDD would be the easiest way, but then I'd loose all of the downloaded data.


    Any help would be appreciated.


    Thanx.

    Ahhhhhhhh I get you now - I generally refer to them as the 'tabs' :rolleyes:

    Is it possible to delete my account from the system, without deleting my account altogether ?

    Yeah, it just removes it from the xbox when you click delete. You'll always be able to sign in on another.
