Deleting Saves on Xbox One?

★★★★★ Apprentice

I just started playing Dragon Age: Origins, and I made a mage that I want to delete. I know in Mass Effect you can delete your save files whenever you want, but I can't find any option to delete my file in this game.

Yeah I know what you did was simply delete the save data from your console.

 

The only way to manage Xbox 360 cloud saves on an Xbox One is from within an Xbox 360 game.

 

To delete it from the cloud you need to do what I said in my original post. Start the game, press both View and Menu buttons together which will bring up the Xbox 360 dashboard.

Then go to Manage storage where you can manage all your Xbox 360 saves that are stored in the cloud.

Launch the game (or any Xbox 360 game for that matter) and press both the View and Menu buttons together (or back and start if you're like me and still use the old button names Standard smile - I even had to google the actual names) to bring up the Xbox 360 Dashboard.

 

Then go to Manage Storage and you can manage any Xbox 360 save games here.

Thank you. I forgot you had to launch the game first.

Thank you. Very helpful. Went back to DAO and wanted to start from scratch but all my saves were at max level and needed to delete them but couldn't figure out how until I read Master Movieman's answer. Stay safe and stay out of my E.R.  if possible! - The tiniest nurse in medicine
