FATXplorer

FATXplorer creates access to native XBox 360 file system.





FATXplorer is "the ultimate XBox storage device explorer." Used by people all around the world since 2010, FATXplorer provides a comprehensive feature set that makes it a key tool in any Xbox 360 owner's collection. FATXplorer provides XBox 360 users direct access to their saved games and content.

The Challenges

The Xbox 360 console uses a different kind of file system that isn't supported natively by any operating system. FATXplorer was designed to successfully handle this file system in order to provide users with access to their games and downloadable content.

The Solution

With the professionally developed CBFS component, FATXplorer is able to create virtual disks representative of the different partitions found on Xbox 360 storage devices. These virtual disks make it extremely easy for users to carry out common operations such as cut, copy and paste on files and directories previously inaccessible.

The Results

CBFS has saved the FATXplorer team development time that would have essentially been used to create and maintain a limited version of Windows File Explorer within the application.
