    Xbox Game Pass PC App cannot detect hard drive

    Hi there Ben! Christopher here, an Xbox fan and been on Xbox for years already. I would really love to make your day by helping you out. I understand your frustration as a fellow SSD user...

    I've got a 2TB external drive I've been installing some larger games on through game pass - so rest assured it is possible. Try this if you haven't already;

    Open the Xbox app (the new one, not companion), and open settings under your profile picture.

    Then, from there you should see where the default location of games is installed to. Change this if it is on drive (C:). I also like to make XGP ask me every time where to install it, as I'll still install smaller games onto my HDD sometimes. Like you said in your post if Windows tries to override your default drive in settings, asking every time could work as it will ask right before it installs.

    Hope this helps! If not, please let me know and I'll try help further.

    Cheers

    internet external drive

    This sounds like it's detecting the games from games pass is that from game pass that are installed on your external hard drive?.

    Issues with transferring data from Xbox 360 20GB HD to Xbox 360 Slim HD via computer.

    Nope, you cannot transfer data from the 20GB drive to the Slim drive on the PC. This process can only be done on the Xbox 360. Please also remember not to format the storage devices on the PC as it will make your hard drives essentially paper weights by
    doing so. The Xbox 360 has a very specific formatted file system structure, if the console detects anything is changed it will either not read the hard drive or detect it as a USB which you won't be able to solve using any sort of tools provided by Microsoft.

    The use of 3rd party tools on Microsoft Xbox 360 hard drives is a violation of the terms of use.

    Installation von Spielen auf alter Festplatte in neuem PC?[Installation of games on an old hard drive in a new PC?]

    Hi Nott,

    Thanks for the reply. This is a difficult one as the old hard drive has files from the entire system of the old PC. This could mean the error is system files, game files or any other ones. The game pass folder are not accessible as they are for games you
    technically do not own. As you get them through game pass. Is the old hard drive a secondary one or the primary? As the best thing would be to reformat the drive so it would match the new PC.

    Thanks,

    Brad
    It's not the primary hard drive, but I really don't want to reformat it as it has almost 2 TB of data on it (games, work files... - and everything except for these games works perfectly fine). I'd have to buy another external hard drive just to save my files.

    Is it not possible to simply delete these files? By letting the Xbox app manually detect it or anything like that?
