    Captures disappearing from "this xbox" in the drop down list. Please help


    Hi I would like to thank everyone here for all their help with past problems. U r all awesome and I hope/pray that u/your loved ones r all doing well and r safe. I have a new problem all of my captures randomly disappear from stored on this xbox. Everything
    uploaded to the activity feed is just fine. I have stuff on there from years ago. Side question should I delete realy old stuff from the activity feed? I talking stuff a year plus older, does the older stuff slow things down or take up memory? Just wondering
    about it and I can't think of a better group to ask. Now back to my problem the captures have stayed for 8 months plus but sometimes they won't last a week. I have had 30 or 50 captures before that lasted months then they all disappear at the sametime. I have
    I 3 screenshots not last 3 days before disappearing. So it not removing them because of lack of storage. Speaking of storage i have a 4T external storage drive made by xbox. U know the really expensive one. I wanted to make sure I had no problems with storage
    compatibility. It has all my games and most of my apps and my internal hard drive is 1T with over 700MB left to use. So it is not deleting the captures for space. Now I also do alot of memory or power cycles to clean cookies and temp files from my xbox. I
    have checked afterwards and my captures were still there but could this be doing it. Or could system updates be wiping my storage sometimes? Please let me know if u have any thoughts or ideas on anything I said here. I was thinking about getting a dedicated
    external hard drive just for my captures but whats the point if this happens to it too. I know I could up loaded everything to the activity feed but I save thing that r just for me. So it sucks when my just for me captures keep getting wiped out all at once
    with no rhyme or reason. Thanks for reading this sorry it's so long but this problem has plagued me for years and I have tried everything to see why it was happening, was it something I was doing? I have no answeres except I can't make it do it, it's not insufficient
    storage space it's not from power cycling and it's not from system updates. But it is a pain in the buttox area. Thanks for everything u all do here please keep safe.

    :)

    Captures disappearing from "this xbox" in the drop down list. Please help

    Hi Wuijibobo thanks for helping. No one has my passwords to get onto any of my accounts,profiles or my gaming systems. This is bizarre how my captures r just vanishing all at once and at completely random times I have tried every way I could think of to
    make them disappear/delete. Hey Wuijibobo I don't have a computer right now. Well I do have my laptop but I only want to use it for work. U save your captures to your computer and that saves them for as long as u want them. Is that how an external hard drive
    works? I have an external hard drive for my games but in order to save media files like XBox game captures I have to make it for media only, NO games. So if I just get another external hard drive and format it for media only would that solve this problem?
    Would it be like saving it to a computer or would stuff get deleted when it needs room or after a set amount of time like the XBox1 internal hard drive does? Thanks again Wuijibobo Please let me know but I think I will get a external hard drive for my media
    no matter what. I hope it will stop my captures from running away. If not then I think my XBox might be cursed and I will have to look for a Voodo Doctor. Thanks Wuijibobo

    Regarding older clips and deleted: I think older stuff might get deleted automatically to make space for any new uploads, but I regularly go back and manually remove older recorded clips just in case. I save them to my PC hard drive before doing so, so I
    still have a back up.

    As for your other issue of recent captures vanishing, that seems very odd. I know a lot of people have had issues uploading captures to XBL in the last few weeks, but if they're vanishing from your XBox itself then that seems bizarre. Does anybody else have
    access to your console? Is it possible that somebody might be deleting them manually?

    Capture time

    Recently my xbox will only record a few seconds of my captures. I have read that a power cycle will help it so ive done that several times and each time after the first capture is yhe length it is supposed to be, but after that the captures shorten.
    Is there another thing i could try?
    Hello Ethan, you can easily fix this by going into capture settings by pressing Xbox Home>Capture Menu>Capture Settings. After entering capture settings go to “Record What Happened”, From here you can choose to make it capture from 15 Seconds To 2 Minutes
    of your gameplay. I hope this helps. If you don’t mind dropping please drop reply if this fixes the problem. I wish you the best of luck!

    Error code 0x80070057 when installing almost all Game Pass games (PC)

    Hi again, Maybe this could also work:

    • Open your Xbox (beta) app
    • click your profile picture in the app itself
    • lick Settings
    • there is a drop down for drive selection.
    and please keep us informed if it help to solve the problem
