    Recover game file data after pressing "reinstall"


    Good day,

    Yesterday Forza had an update after opening the game. I closed the game during the update. Later the game was completely bugged and I couldn't open the game at all (assuming because I closed during the update). The client forced me to 'reinstall' the game which I assumed would simply repair the game, sadly it did not. It deleted the entirety of the game data?? Is there anyway to recover the games files? It's actually quire ridiculous that that Microsoft would label it as "reinstall" and not "redownload".

    :)

    Recover game file data after pressing "reinstall"

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    When an in-process update is canceled it removes the game. I'm afraid you have to reinstall the whole game.

    I have a damaged game of a game.

    Hi!

    Unfortunately, some data is corrupt and there is no way to recover them. To correct, you will need to delete the corrupted data manually. Go to "Settings" -> "System" -> "Storage" -> "Memory" -> "Games". Scroll through the list until you see a Yellow exclamation
    point, select it and press "Delete".

    It can happen both on local corrupted saved game and on installation files, in this case you will need to reinstall the game.

    Xbox thinks app is fully downloaded when it's not

    To delete apps on Xbox One Select the location where the game or app is stored. ...

    Select the game or app logo, press the Menu button , and then select Uninstall.

    To delete saved data, select the saved data file, press the Menu button , and then select Delete saved data. After the app is deleted you can reinstall the app. If all else fails you could always call Xbox support. There phone number is 1-800-469-9269.

    It didn't help because before removing of the Xbox the old data were saved and after reinstallation, they were recovered. Thus the problem remained. If there is a way of removing Xbox together with the information written in the file then it would help,
    because the system would be forced to take the new data from current achievements. There would not be old information for it would be erased. Maybe it would be sufficient to cancel the file with the information written by Xbox. Then the Xbox after lunching
    would create the new file by itself with the new correct information. There should be a method of finding this file and removing it.

    Best wishes,

    Pawel

    Can't open Black OPS 3

    Uninstalled the game and reinstalled it and if that doesn't work try to erase, last choice, all the saved data on the game with the game uninstalled then reinstalled with new save file.
