Yes, you will. Saved game data saves to the cloud. Forza 6 content won't transfer over to Forza 7. Not sure if you asking that.
But unlocked content will carry over from XB1 to XB1X. It's just like getting a new XB1. Your rewards will carry over too. All save info is tied to your gamertag.

99.9% sure

Exactly. Here's the thing, the One X isn't like what the Xbox One to the 360 was. It's different. It's part of the Xbox One family. All your progress, unlocks, achievements, cars, anything, is with your profile. Think of the Xbox One X as just another addition. Just like all your stuff will work on a One S if you had an OG Xbox One, it'll work on a One X. Nothing saved data wise will be lost for any game whatsoever. And anything you do on a One X, will be there on a One S, or OG X1 as well. It's a family of consoles, not a new gen.

Be prepared though. This process will not happen quickly ... it will take a while. Every game on your current XBox will have to download, install and sync on the new OneX. I've had to replace an external hard drive with games stored on it. It worked flawlessly ... but takes some time.

From your the save located on my current console I take it? What happens to my designs, vinyl groups and tunes when I plug in my X, install the game and log in? Does the cloud kick in at that point?

It's all very confusing. I've never changed a console mid-gen. It all seems like a bit of a pain!!

The One X will allow you to transfer games and apps over your home network without the need to use internet bandwidth for downloading again:

Even better than that, if your current games are on an external drive, all you have to do is move the external drive to your new One X and there is no need to even transfer them over your home network. It also looks like they're going to give us a chance to pre download any One X enhancements onto our One or One S and transfer them as well instead of having to download all of them on One X release day.

What how ???? when I read the manual for the Xbox One S it stated that up to 2tb external hard drive could be used. Did I read wrong and when My old 2tb drive died I could have got a Bigger one????.😨😢😰

I've never seen anywhere where they've had a maximum hard drive size stated. I currently am using a 3TB external on my original Day One XBox One. I can't imagine that there's any maximum size limit at all for external drives.

Since the XB1 runs on Win10-64bit and uses MBR for it's game partitions the technical limit is 16 TB.

If you want to use it for media files (movies) and not for games, you can use GPT partitions instead of MBR. This limit is much much higher.

Yes, it's already been confirmed that paints and tunes from FM5, FM6, FH2 and FH3 can be imported into FM7. Anything from previous gen (FM3, FM4, etc.) won't ever be transferred forward because of the different system architecture and file types from the previous generation of consoles.

Preparing Yourself for Xbox One X

The Xbox One X is launching next week, ushering in a brand-new era of 4K console gaming. In the video above, Major Nelson shares several great new features that you can take advantage of right now to help you get up and running as quickly as possible with the games, content, and settings you want on Xbox One X. We’re here to break each of those features down.

Pre-downloading 4K assets

You can pre-download 4K assets for many Xbox One X Enhanced games ahead of launch. After-all, on November 7 you’re going to want to soak in the Xbox One X Enhanced glory with zero delay.

Simply go to Settings, then System, and finally choose Backup and transfer.

You’ll see an option for Download 4K game content right here. Simply tap A to check the box. You can also go to Settings, System, then Updates and check the box for Keep my games and apps up to date. That way the 4K content will download on its own as it becomes available.

Backing Up Your Settings

Head back up to the Backup and Transfer settings. Here you’ll see Back Up My Settings. This will allow you to transfer your account and key system settings, such as notification preferences, over to your new Xbox One X. If you enable this feature, your settings will be copied to a hard drive. Simply have that hard drive connected when you fire up your Xbox One X for the first time and you’ll be able to import your settings.

Transferring Using Network Transfer

Also under Backup and transfer is the network transfer option. This feature allows you to copy games and apps from your current console to your new console using your home network. You’ll just need to be sure both consoles are connected to the network. And don’t worry, because the feature uses your local area network, it won’t use any of your internet bandwidth.

Transferring with an External Hard Drive

If you have a supported external hard drive, though, we recommend that you use that to transfer games over to your Xbox One X. After all, if they’re on a hard drive, you can just plug it in and away you go to far off lands of Xbox One X Enhanced splendor—no waiting required.

Luckily, the team has enabled bulk transfer across storage devices. Simply go to Settings, System, and then choose Storage. From here, you can choose which drive you want to manage. In this case, we’ll choose the Internal drive. From here, you can manually select what you want to move or copy, or even better, you can choose Select all.

Once you’ve selected the games and apps you want to manage, you can choose to Copy or Move them to the supported external drive of your choice.

By using these great features, you can help ensure the quickest possible path to enjoying Xbox One X with the games, apps, and settings you want.

Finding Your Xbox One X Enhanced Games

Once you’re up and running, you’re going to want to know which games are already Xbox One X Enhanced! You can always go to xbox.com/enhanced for an official look at which games have shipped their Xbox One X Enhanced update.

On your console, you can use the Xbox One X Enhanced filter under My Games & Apps to see which games have an update. Again, be sure to enable automatic updates in Settings, System, and then Updates. That way you don’t have to manually download updates when they’re available.

If prefer not to use automatic updates, you can always check the Updates section of My Games & Apps to see which games have an update available.

Of course, you can always check that your game is running the latest version by simply launching it. If it launches, you have the latest version—it’s as simple as that!
