  1. Deleting games after Reformatting C Drive


    After some driver issues, I decided to reinstall Windows 10 on my C drive. This involved me reformatting the drive and it removing all of my apps. I re-installed the Xbox app and I can't play the games. Now I am running into a storage issue since the games
    are installed on a different drive and the app can't locate them. Along with that, I can't access the folder where the games are installed. How do I get the app to recognize the new download location, or, how can I delete the games so I can reinstall them
    in the drive.

    :)

    Deleting games after Reformatting C Drive

    Hi there,

    just to be sure can you locate the drive via the File explorer in Windows itself?

    If not then that is likely the cause that Windows itself can't even recognize the drive.

    Xbox one x external hdd not showing games.

    If you're still having the issue, try plugging your drive into a PC. If it isn't recognized as a separate drive, then it's likely corrupt and you'll need to reformat fresh on the PC to NTFS format before plugging it back into the Xbox and reformatting/reinstalling
    all of your games. I'm in the middle of that after exhausting all other options, including a factory reset of my console (didn't delete games and apps).

    Is anyone having problems with playing mass effect 3? Not sure this should here or in Mass Effect 3 forum

    No! Don't reformat your drive... As long as the 250 GB isn't all used, then you don't have too much on your drive. Your game could be having issues, delete and reinstall just the game.

    Lost all of my saved game data

    Unfortunately, a hard drive reformats each time you plug it into a different brand of console, deleting the data.

    System use and Xbox OS nothing to worry about it's the same with PC's. You can reformat the hard drive to be sure this will delete everything on the Hard Drive.
