  1. (Xbox PC App Suggestion) Detect Existing files for Installation


    Pretty sure I'm not the first to suggest this, and won't be the last, but the Xbox App NEEDS to have a feature to detect existing game files in the installation directory. Essentially, the app will check valid game files, then (re-)download any broken or invalid ones, hence shortening download time.

    I usually download repacks to save bandwidth, then install them and move them to the respective client's game directory to detect those files on their legitimate copy. I'm pretty sure most of the PC gaming community with low download speeds, or bandwidth quotas, does this.

    Steam, GoG, Origins etc. have this feature and it has been a blessing. Having this for the Xbox App (for that promised "be more like Steam" update teased recently) will be a blessing for GP users who have problems downloading big games via the app.

    Hi,

    Error 0x80070005 is an 'access denied' error code. It means that games and apps can't be installed due to file access restrictions.

    Did you use D:\ drive on a previous PC or previous install of Windows 10?

    Games and Apps on Windows 10 Store install to a folder called 'WindowsApps', if this folder already exists on your drive, you won't be able to install games.

    What are the fixes you tried? I'll suggest uninstall the Xbox App, restart your PC and then install the app again, and try.

    I Wonder How Big A 4K Digital Game Download Will Be On The Scorpio?

    it will most likely detect which xbox version you have and download the amount needed, same as disc, it will detect which xbox you are using and install the needed files only.
