    Xbox PC Beta after dowloading games to seperate drive than windows, I have had to...


    I joined the xbox beta for $1 and downloaded some games, but as I have windows on a smaller boot drive I downloaded the games to a different drive. Since doing this I have had to re-install windows twice due to getting several different blue screen errors.
    I tried just uninstalling the xbox app, but my drive space was still taken up by what I assume was the games since I was unable to find the file or folder where the games download to to be able to delete them and/or verify this is what was taking up my drive
    space. After clean re-installing windows and losing all of my data twice I am hesitant to re-install this on my computer. I hate to keep having to start over especially since I live in a rural area and my internet will only download at 3mb per second.

    I have been very un-impressed by this app so far and I am very glad I only spent a dollar to go through this ordeal. I really feel like Microsoft should have been paying us to Beta test this.

    Are the developers planning on changing the way it stores games in hidden files to prevent this in the future? With other game engines such as Steam, origin, Uplay I am able to access the files where
    my games are stored and move them from one drive to another easily and not to mention none of them have ever caused me Windows blue screen errors.

    :)

    Blue screen errors can be caused by a number of issues. Usually it's because your drivers for your hardware (Graphics, Sound, network, Bluetooth etc, etc) are out of date, try updating them. It might stop the blue screen happening.

    You have to remember also that the Xbox app is currently in beta, and can cause issues with peoples systems.

    Hi,

    Sorry about your issues there. Re-installing Windows because of a Blue Screen error should be a last resort. Windows 10 doesn't get BSOD errors unless the issue is quite serious, which as 'StuartATrueRed' has already pointed out could be caused by any number
    of issues.

    These blue screens could be caused by a number of issues, software or hardware. For software it could be driver related issue. Hardware could be a failing hard drive, failing RAM or a failing GPU, to name a few. These blue screens are not being caused
    by the Game Pass PC beta app. But without a description of what the BSOD error says, there is no way of us knowing what the issue is.

    PC Game Pass games use Windows 10's standard Universal Windows Platform and as such all install to the 'Windows Apps' folder. This folder is hidden by default but, it is possible to

    take ownership of this folder.

    It's a beta app. There's gonna be a lot of issues. That's why it exists now.
    Yes, but you must not be a PC gamer. The PC Game Pass would not be the cause of BSOD errors in Windows.

    Cannot download GamePass PC games through Xbox Beta App, with error 0x80070005

    Same issue here.

    Windows is up to date (version 1903), the XBox Beta app is installed properly, In the Parameters, the XBox Game Pass PC Games is displayed as active.

    Yet is I try to download a game from the Game Pass Pc Games, it tells me an unexpected error occurs 0x80070005.

    However I can dowload game that only requires the old XBox Game Pass for Windows (which I also have).

    So Metro or Vampyr give me an error while Wargroove or Sea of Thieves for instance, work.
