    Some games won't install on external hard drive.


    Hey there, Recently, I've been having some trouble installing some games on my external hard drive. It's a Seagate 8TB and it's being strictly used on my Xbox One X. The issue first occurred when I tried installing Black Desert via Game Pass
    into my external hard drive. The second I click install, Xbox will notify me that the installation stopped 3 times, accompanied with the error code 0x80070570, and will force me to cancel the installation in the Games and Apps menu.

    Now, I've got over 2TB of space left in my external hard drive, so I know that space isn't the issue. And I know that the hard drive might not be the direct cause because I managed to install a ton of other games after the initial incident via Game Pass and
    purchased games with no issues. Also, the issues occurred with a couple of other games I tried installing via Game Pass; Devil May Cry 5 and Kingdom Come Deliverance, as well as Hitman S1, which is the free game offered through XBL this month.

    I managed to circumvent the issue by installing all the games mentioned above into my internal hard drive hassle free.

    I also noticed that the issue may have affected games already installed into my external hard drive. When I tried booting up the game SMITE, the Xbox would tell me that it needed to finish installing, even though it had been installed for years now and played
    many times since, no issues whatsoever. In order to get it to work again, I had to uninstall it and reinstall it into my internal hard drive.

    So my question is, anybody know what the issue may be and how it can be rectified? I would much rather keep installing my games in my external hard drive as it more convenient space-wise..

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    (On a side note, are we still able to ask for help to the Xbox Support account on Twitter? Just curious because I DMd them twice this passed week regarding this and never got a response, whereas in the past, they would respond to DMs the same day.)

    :)
