  1. Can't access or delete games from a previous Windows installation


    I recently got a new C drive, so I did a fresh install of Windows. I previously had Gears 4 and 5 (and some other stuff) installed on a second drive, but now they don't show as installed. (I have since installed Gears 5 on my C drive) So there is a 259GB
    folder clogging up my extra drive that doesn't do anything. I tried changing ownership to get into the WindowsApps folder, but it just says "working on it" and explorer locks up. I tried deleting the whole folder and it just says preparing and never does anything.

    How do either get Windows to recognize theses games are installed and remove them using the normal add or remove option, or just delete the folder. There is a lot of other stuff on this drive so formatting isn't an option.

    :)
