    Not able to switch Hard Drive Storage Locations on XBOX GAME PASS PC


    Every time that switch the storage from my SSD which has 30 GB available of the 150 GB to my 2 TB Game HD which steam and the like have no issue with , it tells me I have to chose the OS drive for it to work. When i select my Photo and Media Back Up HD
    it says its not setup for game installation, which I understand. For the life of me I don't want to go have to buy a 2TB SSD and reinstall windows and everything else just to get this to work to me it seems as a design flaw but if anyone can point me in the
    right direction, That would be amazing. Right now this has been nothin but P I T A.....

    :)

    Hi BigMeng13!

    If you can't change it with the application installed, try uninstalling it. in the installation process you have the option to change the path.

    I know it's not a big help, but if I'm not mistaken, it still can't be changed in beta.

    Have a good day!

    Hi there,

    be sure to provide this feedback via the Feedback option within the Xbox beta app. You can find it by clicking your profile icon in the app in top right corner and select the Feedback option, this will start the Feedback app where you can provide this feedback.

    That way the correct people will see it.

    If you select a different storage device then of course everything would be reset. Always choose the storage device that has your save file on it. In the options menu of the game you should be able to switch storage devices. Just switch back to your hard
    drive.
