Clearing your 360 system cache

Clearing your 360 system cache

Published On June 13, 2006 | By Console Monster | News

A couple of day’s ago news was circulating about a feature which will allow you to clear your Xbox 360 system cache. Now before I type how to do this it’s probably best if I tell you what it does.

Clearing out your system cache:

  • Will clear out the temporary copies of achievements and gamertiles on Memory Units or Hard Drives (note these get re-downloaded when re-connected to Xbox Live)
  • Will clear out Game Updates stored on Memory Units or Hard Drives. (note these will get re-downloaded when launching that Game while connected to Xbox Live)
  • Will not clear out system updates.
  • Will not clear out the game areas of the hard drive where game titles cache their own information

So the only reason this might be useful to you is if you want to delete a game update which you might have. I would have said it would be very useful if you want to use the item duplication glitch in Oblivion but as you can see here, they didn’t fix it in the update.

But if you do have any problems it might be worth it to try it out Follow these steps:

Go to the system blade and then memory. Press Y on either the HDD or a MU and then press X, X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X, X. Once you do this a blade will pop up saying “This will perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices. Do you want to continue?” Pick yes or no.

360Monster would just like to point out that we are not responsible for anything that might go wrong with this update, be it your 360 blowing up or your dog running around trying to catch its tail.
