    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?

    Xbox One Installation Stopped External Hard Drive

    None of the above solve the issue. Games currently Installed on the external drive work. Unless they need an update. They can not be updated. New games can not be installed to external drives in the xpack enclosure. Apps seem install with no issue. Games
    can not be migrated to or from the external drive as well. Apps migrate with no issue. The issue seems to be related to the xpack external enclosure. It seems to have stopped working after the Feb update. Prior to this games installed updated and transfered
    with no issues using the xpack enclosure.

    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.

    can I install games to my external drive

    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.
