Microsoft has announced a new update for Xbox consoles, which arrives today with not many new features, but a very important change regarding the screenshots and that you must take into account so as not to lose them.
In short: starting today, the screenshots or video clips we take They will only be stored on our Xbox network for 90 days.

Microsoft says it has made the process of backing up your screenshots or videos to OneDrive or an external device easier than ever.
To do this, from the console, press the Xbox button – My games and apps – See all – Applications – Captures, where you will see a “Tell me more” button to save your captures to OneDrive (or define that all your captures are automatically saved in OneDrive so you don’t have to worry).
