    Games reinstalling instead of updating.


    Quite often when games need to update they will download the whole game again instead of just the update. Forza Horizon 4 seems to do this every time. Why is this?

    Games reinstalling instead of updating.

    I had this same problem once p. You need to check and make sure your auto update for games and apps are off.

    Red dead 2 uninstalled itself

    Hello Joey,

    That may be normal, with some updates if it involves multiple aspects of the game it will reinstall the complete game. For example, if the story has multiple updates throughout it is easier to just reinstall it with updated version than enter all the updates.
    Personally had this happen with fallout 76 instead of installing the update it installed the complete game again. Happened two times with the update for fallout.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Uninstalled games

    Hello Awesome,

    This has also happened to me some too, when the game goes to update it reinstalls the whole game. Only thing I can think is why they do this is the update is throughout the game instead of just certain parts. So instead it just installs the complete thing.
    For example Fallout 76 said needed update soon as I started the update, it then proceeded to install full game.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Deleted games I wanted to keep

    Oh yeah also something strang when I start the update sometimes instead of a small 1 to 5 gig update it'll just start reinstalling the game with no warning and thats about 40 to 90 gig and once again the obi Wan Kenobi scream.

    Xbox stuck on green loading screen

    Instead of doing the factory restore, I'd try doing the OSUDT2. That will reinstall the system updates and hopefully kick it out of the error you're getting now.
