    Yes, and slow limited internet. I guess it doesn't seem like a problem to the geeks that work there with high speed internet access.

    Hi,

    While cancelling an update removes an entire game may seem ridiculous, logically it's not. What is ridiculous is that there isn't a warning.

    why is my whole game removed when I cancel an update?

    Game updates - or patches - are not added to the end of the game. What I mean is, if your game is 44 GB installed and you get a 1GB update, the install size on the HDD doesn't necessarily become 45GB.

    When your console updates a game, the game files that are downloaded actually replace other older files already installed. If you cancel the update the files will be incomplete, even corrupt. Basically you'll have an incomplete game that would no longer
    run, hence the entire game is removed.

    Game sizes usually only get larger when the update contains DLC, and if you didn't know already, all games get the DLC installed as part of these updates automatically regardless of you purchasing DLC or not.

    I feel your pain, I think most of us have had it happen, and most of us have complained about it. I can only hope that the way the updates are set up for the Xbox Series X will prevent that being an issue with the next generation of consoles.
