    My games are being deleted automatcally (PC)


    Every time I download a game on the Xbox app it gets deleted, I have downloaded Forza Horizon 5 about 4 times now and it keeps just getting deleted. I downloaded it this morning and restarted my computer due to an unrelated issue and it was gone when I started it back up. I know the files are not being lost because the game is 100GB and if the files were still there I would have run out of space by the 3rd download. in this last restart, the Xbox app decided to uninstall the rest of the games I had downloaded as well for some reason. I really don't know how to stop this, it's not like I dont have enough space to keep the games and the other games are gone now too.

    :)

    My games are being deleted automatcally (PC)

    Hello, My name is Jesse. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    Please try the following:

    Step 1

    - Type Troubleshoot in Windows search and press Enter

    - If you can't see troubleshooters, click the Additional troubleshooters option on the right

    - Here, find Windows update section

    - Click Run the troubleshooter and wait till the process is finished.

    Step 2

    - Type Services in Windows search and hit Enter

    - In the new Windows, scroll down till you find Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS)

    - If the service is running, right-click and select Restart

    - If not, right-click and select Start

    - Do the same with Windows Update service.

    Step 3

    Press Win + REnter the following and hit Enter:

    regsvr32 Qmgr.dll /s

    Open the Run dialog again and run the following command:

    regsvr32 Qmgrprxy.dll /s

    Step 4

    For this fix to work, you would have to find another Windows 10 machine of the same version (Home/Pro/Enterprise). If you have access to such a machine, do the following:

    - Access another computerType regedit in Windows search and press Enter

    - If User Account Control shows up, click YesNavigate to the following location:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\TrustedInstaller

    - Right-click on the branch and select Export

    - Choose the location, name the file trustedinstaller and click Save

    - Transfer the file to your computer

    - Once the file is on your desktop, double-click the trustedinstaller.reg to merge it with your own registry

    - Restart the PC and try updating Windows again.

    Step 5

    If none of the above helps, you can repair your Windows installation without losing files or installed apps. Here's how to do it:

    - Go to the official Microsoft website and download installation files

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo...(press Download tool now)

    - Once downloaded, double-click the setup.exe

    - Accept License and Terms, select Upgrade this PC now, and click Next

    - After the necessary files are downloaded, choose Keep personal files and apps

    - Click Install (make sure that all apps are closed and not running before doing this)

    - Your PC will restart and installation finished

    Games are Being Deleted by my Console

    Lets not update these and let them sit for a while alright if the updates don't disappear follow the steps below.

    Remove your account (settings - account - remove accounts) then power cycle the console by holding the power button on the system for 8 seconds until it powers down then unplug it from receiving power for 5 minutes once done plug it back in turn the system
    on and re-download your account from the side menu on the left.

    The console shouldn't take double the space unless it is downloading two copies of the game(s) which again shouldn't happen if you can't seem to remove the second download then you should reset the console (fully) just in case something has caused this

    External storage problems

    You can't undo the games being deleted...a drive format will always delete any information on it permanently.

    As to the faults on the drive etc, how old is the drive? The best way would be if you have a PC/laptop as you could plug it into that and do troubleshooting.
