And don't laugh, I just learned Friday I could save my 360 saves on a cloud. Haha, guess I never thought about it. When my Ps3 puked, just got me to thinking... Time to backup....

Nice function though! Will come in handy one day. 500mb compared to ps3's 160 mb. Every game device should have a clould function.

Is there a way to back-up all the saves at once or do you have to do them individually?

this is a great question and even a greater question is why they don't offer it? no you can't. Seems like that would be easy to add the functionality.

Perhaps they don't do it cause of the small 512MB cloud save :confused:

Yes you can... instead of going to the individual game folders go to the Hard Drive and press Y and click on the option to copy to the Cloud drive. This normally would copy everything over but only the save files will transfer, at the end you will get a message stating something like "not all files were copied" and these is usually everything else.

- The one drawback about doing it this way is that you are not going to know which saves are "copy" protected as some files you can only 'MOVE" rather than copy over.Those save files will remain in your hard drive unless you "move" them to the cloud drive.

-Also be careful if you have ROCK BAND songs in your hard drive, apparently the system recognizes them as save files so it only takes a few songs to fill up your cloud drive.

How do I get them to sync automatically like on PSN+?

At this point there is no automatic sync in the 360. While you can use it as a backup for save files, the cloud drive works best if you use it more like the steam save system. So for example every time you load a game up you should be using the cloud drive to save your games. This is perfect for people like me that have multiple xboxes so every time I load a game from a different system the save files are always there. Yes this could become a problem when you can't access the cloud drive, which this is why I recommend at the end of every game to back up the save from the cloud to your hard drive...... at this moment we are just going to have to wait for microsoft to implement a system that when you use the cloud that it saves a copy in your hard drive every time.
