    Xbox app on PC not deleting games fully?


    HI, I've looked online for the answer to this but have never gotten a solution. I made the mistake of installing the Xbox PC app to my NVME drive that I keep windows 10 on. When I realized It I said screw it, its 1TB I should be fine for awhile... Well now I'm not lol. When I go to uninstall games through the Xbox app it goes fine and says its done. Issue is its not really deleting the game. I use an app called TreeSize which shows me what's taking up my disk storage and sure enough every Xbox game I've deleted is there. Stored under my drive /D/Program Files/WindowsApps/

    All of them have weird names for instance Forza Horizon 4 is listed as "Microsoft.SunriseBaseGame_1.443.701.2_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe" It's been uninstalled but still taking up 80gb! On top of all that I can not manually delete any files in this folder. It says Folder Access Denied you need permission?



    If anyone has ever experienced this please let me know. Thanks so much!



    added pic of the issue here

    Also wanted to add that after I uninstall through the Xbox app it appears totally gone in library and in control panel.

    I really don't want to completely remove the app to another drive but If I have to to fix this then I will

    Gears 5 download reset from Windows Store

    Just delete the game, restart the pc and try again. If you still have issues report them through the xbox app.

    Xbox installer on windows 10 freeze at launch.

    Hi

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. I'd be happy to help.

    It seems like the app was possibly not uninstalled or deleted properly from your PC and now it freezes when trying to re-install. Do you see the app still in your Task manager? Click where it says more details and go through each tab
    and locate the Xbox game pass beta app. Right click and then select Open file location, which should open the folder with any files you would still need to delete.

    Open run window (Windowskey + R) - Type in: "%appdata%" - Delete the Xbox app (beta) for the PC Game Pass folder in the roaming folder (You should be in it already). Go back one folder, then you should end up in Appdata - Go to
    "Local" - Delete the beta Xbox app folder in there too. You can also get to the local folder by typing %localappdata% in the run window. Once you delete the folders for the app that is having issues, try re-installing again from this website https://www.xbox.com/xbox-game-pass/pc-games.

    Xbox app for pc wont install (I have 1903)

    Hi JOSHDL17,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. I'd be happy to help.

    It's possible the original files for the app were not properly deleted. Open run window (Windowskey + R) - Type in: "%appdata%" - Delete the Xbox app (beta) for the PC Game Pass folder in the roaming folder (You should be in it already). Go
    back one folder, then you should end up in Appdata - Go to "Local" - Delete the beta Xbox app folder in there too. You can also get to the local folder by typing %localappdata% in the run window. Once you delete the folders for the app the is having issues,
