    Installed games magically disappear from Xbox app on Windows 10


    Through Game Pass, I downloaded Doom Eternal onto my computer through the Xbox app. Recently, I changed my boot drive to an SSD, which changed all my directories around. I expected that Xbox would no longer detect any of the games I had previously installed, as did Steam, but when I went to install it again on the same drive in the same exact location, it did not find any of the files.

    So, I decided to just install it again and let it install for a few hours. I shut down my computer instead of letting it install overnight, resumed the install in the morning with no problems, then once it was finished I restarted my computer to install an update. Despite it being finished and no longer installing anything, it disappeared again. Upon an attempt at a third installation, it seemed to find the previous files and looked to be almost done before it encountered an error. I could not tell you the error it gave me, as I tried cancelling the installation and reinstalling it AGAIN.

    The worst part about all of this is that, using a software called WizTree that lets me see the contents of individual disk drives, I can see two massive files, both 56.1 GB (the exact size listed for Doom Eternal) sitting on the drive I'm trying to install it on.

    Can't install Halo Wars 2

    Hello TDOG453,

    Thank you for keeping us updated. Are you attempting to install the game from the Xbox (beta) App, Xbox Console Companion App or the Windows Store App? We have seen some cases where installing the game from the Windows Store App will resolve the issue.
    Go ahead and cancel the installation and begin installing it from the Windows Store App. You can try initiating the installation from the other two applications as well if the Windows Store App does not work.

    We noticed that you mentioned trying out several different solutions. We have a support article on our website for

    . Did any of these solutions help resolve the issue? Be sure to let us know the results!

    Can the Windows Store verify an existing installation of game(s) downloaded previously or from files from another computer? Similar to Steam et al

    Hi there Nor,

    Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately, you will need to click the install to download any digital content for PC.

    If you have a Windows 10 device, you can now use the Xbox app to connect to the Xbox Live service.

    If you’re having problems installing the Games for Windows Live app, or connecting to the Xbox Live service, see

    Troubleshoot Games for Windows Live connection problems
    .

    For other gaming options, see:

    Hope this helps.
