    [Tech] Selected few games not installing on external HDD issue


    Hi folks. I don't know if this is insider related as the issue has been present for about 6 months for me now - it has persisted through a full format of the external drive with no joy.

    I have a One X in the beta preview.

    I have a 4tb external drive in a RAID setup and have found a few titles that are unable to be installed on the external. Forza 7, and most recently Truck Driver suffer from this. The drive has plenty of free space (over 1TB) and yet the install is stopped. If I switch default install to internal it works. And yet I can still install other titles. Has anyone encountered anything like this?

    Loading games off external Hard drive doesn't work (Xbox One)

    In the storage setup, try selecting the external HDD as your default storage. If this does not work, try installing the game again on the external hard disk, with the default setting being set at the time of installation.

    Borderlands 3 took too long to start - Error 0x8027025A - Possible hardware issue?

    Do you have available any External HDD? If you have you can try to find if is a hardware issue in the Internal HDD by installing the games in a external hdd.

    Installations failing on external drives

    I had the same issues with certain games and apps not installing on the external USB 3.0 Lacie Rugged Mini 2TB HDD.

    Once the games or apps would not install on the external HDD it will not move to the external HDD either.

    The HDD is not faulty. I believe it is fine. I tried with several brands myself and they are fine on the Macs and PCs.

    I believe it is digital rights management issues along with Xbone system software issues.

    I hope Xbone engineering team resolve this soon as I cannot buy any games from the store since I cannot install on the external HDD.

    Slow starting to move games to external hdd

    I had support chat with Xbone support team about external hdd issues such as moving certain content.

    Certain content just would not install or move to the external hdd. My external hdd is Lacie Rugged Mini 2TB USB 3.0 (tested fine on both MACs and PCs) before formatting on Xbox One for Games and Apps.

    Once a game or app does not install externally it would not move to the external hdd.

    My 360 moves games or apps almost always successfully.

    This externally hdd moving issues along with certain games and apps not installing on it is causing major headaches. I also already tested with another brand which as tested on both MACs and PCs fine but with Xbox One it is becoming an issue.

    I believe it is a combination of digital rights management, account issue, along with Xbone system software.

    Hi there,

    just to be sure, are the games installed on an external hdd? If so can you try what happens if the game is installed on a different external hdd or the internal hdd.
