Microsoft Xbox consoles are manufactured with a hard drive inside the machine for game data storage. User profiles, saved games, and other user data are stored on this internal hard drive, which can be accessed easily using the Xbox's built-in main menu. Other user data, like picture files, can be copied from the Xbox to a USB storage device using the Xbox's built-in operating system, called the "Dashboard."
