    Disk has been surprise removed event log warning with greyed out Xvd disk drives in Device...


    I was randomly checking event log and there's a heap of Disk errors in there. Some googling led me to a technet post that matches the weird behavior I'm seeing and attributes it to the Xbox app.

    Wolfenstein Yougblood on Game Pass is not the same as the Steam version

    go to device manager then select disk drives, then click view up top menu then show hidden devices, you will see a long list of xvd devices, this also causes an entry in the event viewer about a disk drive being removed unexpectedly (only happens when
    you quit the gamepass game), only a yellow warning, i dug deeper and they were in fact the gamepass games.

    These are those Xbox related 'Xvd' drives. Well, it's what they look like on my PC anyway.

    Disk 6 Has been Surprised Removed

    Hi,

    It's not an issue, it's how it's meant to function.

    Unless you're having major issues with your PC you shouldn't need to look at event viewer as it will always show system errors even on totally healthy clean OS instalations.

    The Game Pass titles use a similar filesystem as their Xbox counterparts which creates temporary VXD drives. These virtual discs shouldn't be using more storage when in use.

    XBOX PC APP game and Defender Ransomware Protected Folders - how to make them coexist?

    a lot of the xbox app games use virtual disks, you can see these in device manager as xvd

    the xbox app folders are encrypted and if a third party program is messing with that then the games will not start.

    most of the games in pc gamepass are installed as XVD (xbox virtual disks), these can be seen under devices and storage.

    they are basically wrapped versions of the console games. except a few like halo mcc.
