The backward compatibility has been always confusing process. But some questions are answered by the XBOX director of program management Jason Ronald.

As a summary of what he told in an interview for XBOX Wire, if you are using external harddisk (either SSD or HDD), it will be straightforward for your. On the other hand for others the process is a little complicated.

Jason Ronald’s explanatations are as follows: “It is easy as unplugging your existing external USB 3.1 HDD or SSD from your Xbox One and connecting it to your Xbox Series X/S and all your games are instantly available. You can continue to play your favorite Xbox One games, including backward-compatible Xbox 360 and original Xbox games, directly from the external hard drive.”

The interview also confirmed that Quick Resume, a new feature that allows the next-gen Xbox to pause games in the background even while other games are being played, will also work for games being loaded off an external hard drive or the Seagate Storage Expansion Card. The Expansion Card is a new bespoke storage product just for the Xbox Series X/S, which you may need given the new generation of Xbox supports backwards compatible games going back three generations.
