    Games suddenly vanish from library, but storage space is still being used


    So one day I was downloading a few games, when I check on the progress the day after most games vanished, but I still have 92,9% usage of my storage, I tried checking the same games on the Microsoft store and it just says to download it again, I can't because of my low storage space and I can't clear it because the games won't appear, what do I do? I have tried doing a hard reset but nothing happened, could it also be a problem with my external storage unit?

    :)

    Hi! My name is Pam. I'm an Independent Advisor and I'll be glad to help you today.

    Yes, the same thing also happened to me and most likely, it's really the external hard drive. Please Turn off console > (press and hold power button for 10 seconds) unplug everything from the console > wait for 2 minutes and plug everything back > Turn On the console.

    In case the issue still persist, I suggest to format your external hard drive.

    Xbox one S random crashes

    I factory reset it and while installing the game the internet connection suddenly vanished while being wired. It worked fine for about 20 minutes.

    Almost entire ready to install library has vanished.

    Also the games have completely vanished from my library. But I am able to download them through the store.

    At least the term "Entitlement" suddenly seems to have vanished with the beards that it came from.

    What is with these Xbox Live storage limits?

    Hi Son,

    The term 'unlimited' here is kind of misleading. While you will always have space for your save files and data files from games, your cloud storage space is still limited based on the number of games you have. As you add more games to your library, your
    storage space in the cloud will grow, allowing for more content to be uploaded, to it is virtually 'unlimited' in that sense. However, it is still limited with the amount of space you actually have at one time, and as you create more clips and upload them
    to the cloud, that space gets used up. I'm not exactly sure how much space you are getting per game, but your best thing to do is to go through your videos and delete any old ones that you don't want any more, and make sure you delete it from "everywhere"
    since it most likely lives on both the Xbox and in the cloud. This should help you clear up some space to be able to upload some more videos to the cloud. I hope this helps clarify a few things for you. :)
