  1. Losing my games when resetting to factory settings?


    Hi! Well, this is the first time I have the need to ask a question since I got my Xbox One S back in 2016, because I never had a problem, until know.

    My Xbox keeps like getting stuck (audio and video freezes) for a second and then turns off.

    Now, first of all I followed all instructions I found here for solving the issue (not connecting my console to a power surge, since it has one built-in, changed the power settings, replacing it to avoid overheating and such) in fact that's why I'm posting this: I'm planning to factory reset my system.

    BUT, I have a, for you Microsoft support technicians, very simple question.

    I have the 500GB Gears of War 4 Xbox One S. Along the years I bought digital games (such as Sonic Mania) and Fallout 3 (which came with Fallout 4 physical copy), the rest of my dozen games are physical. However, here's my question:

    When a Xbox One S is reset to factory settings, will Sonic Mania, Fallout 3 and Gears of War will be deleted as well, right? Then, how do I recover them?

    My concern is that I don't have those downloading codes anymore and if I find them, I understand they are like for 1 use only, right? So, I will lose my games?

    Yeah, I know about the cloud storage but still, I want to be sure I won't be losing my games.

    That's the only thing that keeps me from resetting my Xbox to factory settings, for me to try fix the freezing issue. Thanks in advance!

    :)

    The games are all tied to the account you redeemed them on. If that's your account, you would just sign in and redownload the games through your library in your Games and Apps.
