    Can't uninstall games.

    So i tried something. I unplugged my external hard drive which has most of my games on it. All games installed on my xbox I can delete. So does that mean my external drive is going bad?

    can I install games to my external drive

    I run all of my games from an external drive, but at the moment, I still have to download them and install them on to it. This mean I use up a fair bit of data and normally leave the downloads running in the background.

    Hello MrXX ol,

    Thank you for posting on Xbox Forums. In regards to this issue, you can install games onto an External Hard Drive, however, it will use the same amount of data as if you were installing the games onto your Internal Hard Drive. For more info on
    External Hard Drives please view this support article.

    If you have any other questions please feel free to reply back letting us know. Thank you again for posting on Xbox Forums.

    The only way is to get your disk to box where there is faster internet, log in with your account and download. Then unplug it, and plug it on at home. The feature you are asking is coming with the next console generation.

    Warframe not installing.

    I had the same message when trying to install GTA 5. Even though it would be installing on my external hard drive, it still wanted the 0KB on my internal drive. I was able to install successfully once I transferred one 15GB game from my internal to external
    drive it was fine.
