  1. Xbox game bar captured clips wont open in folder


    I can view the clips in the game bar just fine but when i open the folder they are in windows is telling me it cant find it and make sure i type in the name in correctly? Now the clips in folder are showing as a blank page like its corrupted or just empty. Im about to lose 2 years worth of clips is there anyway to fix this or recover the files?

    :)

    Hey there!

    When you started capturing your clips did you start capturing them in the external HD, or did you save them to the default file drive which is C:\users\%username%\Videos\Captures?

    I would suggest trying to capture a new game clip without your external HD plugged in to see what it says when it asks you where you want to save the clips.

    Also what do you see when you open up your captures folder from the Game Bar?

    To see where your captures are saved, open Game bar and select the My captures folder, or press the
    Start button, choose Settings > Gaming >
    Captures. Press the Open folder button to see your captures in File Explorer.

    By default, game clips and screenshots are saved in your Videos folder (named
    Captures). The Captures folder can be moved to different places on your PC.

    There should also be a help link when you select Captures that says "How to save to a different folder".

    Try that out and let us know what happens.

    Welcome to the community. How are you?

    Try moving the folder to another drive on your PC. Or open Xbox Companion, try to locate your captures and re-download them.

    Hey Z3N3K

    Thank you for taking the time to post this on the Xbox Forums. We understand that you are currently experiencing difficulties with recording content.

    If you haven't already, I recommend that you review the
    Troubleshooting Xbox Game Bar on Windows 10
    article and see if some of these techniques work for you.

    Additionally, it would be worth trying to save your captures to a different location and see if that helps alleviate the message that states there is nothing to record.

    To see where your captures are saved, open Game bar and select the My captures folder, or press the
    Start button, choose Settings > Gaming >
    Captures. Press the Open folder button to see your captures in File Explorer.

    By default, game clips and screenshots are saved in your
    Videos folder (named Captures). The Captures folder can be moved to different places on your PC.

    There should also be a help link when you select Captures that says "How to save to a different folder".

    I hope this is of some use to you.

    Losing recorded clips without actually deleting them

    To find your clips and screenshots, select the Start button, then go to Settings > Gaming > Captures and
    select Open folder.
