Understanding Xbox One profile and achievements

1: "Xbox, go to achievements!" Your achievement should be in its own category, entitled Day One (as if it was a game in its own right).

2: IIRC the number is the number of years that you've been an XBL gold subscriber. I think they have to be consecutive.

(Damn but it gets messy trying to make new threads on this site on android...)

So... a couple of questions that hopefully you folks will know the answer to:

I have scanned the QR code in for my Day One achievement. Where can I actually see it? And how do I see it on my friends' profiles, if they have it?

Also, what's the green circle above my gamerscore about? I have a green circle with a six in it. I've seen other numbers on other peoples' profiles but I've no idea what it's supposed to signify.

Edit typo

Ah - thanks Jon.

Turns out I never put my code in correctly - I guess I didn't hit "confirm" or something. Have rescanned it and can see the achievement now :D

And six sounds about right for my Gold subs.

Only remotely related to the above, but...

Anyone got any idea where to look to see how much HDD space you have remaining?
With games installing at about 40gb each (and I've no idea how much space is taken up by the OS etc.) we'll get through the 500gb HDD in no time.

I understand the One deletes your older games to make way for newer ones (but keeps save data etc, probably in the cloud) but I'd like some idea of when it's actually full rather than not finding out until I go to play a game I've installed only to find it's no longer installed...

I mentioned this in my (admittedly unbelievably TL:DR) review, but there is currently NO way to see how much HDD space you have remaining.

Yep. It's stupid.

However, at least MS have identified this as one of their top priorities for the first round of patching - and Xbox One won't delete your stuff without asking.

Thanks Jon
