    No, for two reasons.

    The 360 only supports external hard drives up to 2TB in size, and if a drive has been formatted by the Xbox One for its own use then it can only be used by Xbox One consoles unless you reformat it.

    depending on the games you have on Xbox 360, if they are backwards compatible to Xbox One, any saved progress you can store on the cloud. then just download when you want to play on Xbox One with the disc. cloud storage doesn't take up physical storage for your external drive.

    No, you can only format it for one or the other. Go buy a Microsoft HD for your 360 they are cheap. The 3TB is better on your Xbox One. The 360 can only format 2TB.
