    100 gigs of an old game stuck in Windows Apps.


    I have over 100 gigabytes of data from Ark Survival Evolved stuck in Windowsapps. I downloaded Ark awhile ago from the windows store, didn't play it much and deleted it because it was taking up too much space. Recently I was seeing what else i could delete and found data from Wildcard studios and ultimately Ark, was still in windows apps. I tried my best but cannot seem to delete it. Help me its just useless data.

    :)

  2. DiRT Rally 2.0 Stuck in Xbox app

    Thank you Jeffrey,

    I guess not need for step 2 as I won't run it as .ps1 script.

    I tried the command, but the game is still stuck in the Xbox app, keep in mind that the game is not listed in Windows apps.

  3. Wanting to run old games

    Hi Jameson,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    I would suggest you to refer the below link and check the compatibility of the game with Windows 10.

    Explore Windows 10 OS, Computers, Apps, & More | Microsoft

    You may also try installing the game in compatibility mode.
    Follow these steps to install the game software in compatibility mode and check if that helps.


          • Right-click on the game setup file and click on
            ‘properties’.

          • Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box
            ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation. Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists.
    If the issue still persists, I would suggest you to get in touch with the game manufacturer if it’s specific to that particular game.

    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.

    Windows 10 Game Apps

    Based on the error you've received, this seems to be due to corrupted Store cache. We suggest manually resetting the Store app from the Settings menu. Here are the steps:

    • Click Start, then Settings.
    • Select System.
    • Select Apps & features.
    • Find the Store app, then click Reset.
    • Click Reset again to confirm.
    • Restart your device so that the changes will take effect. Sign in to the app. Launch the game and check if the same issue occurs.

    We also recommend accessing the game from the Start menu. Here are the steps:

    • Press the Windows button on your device or keyboard, or select the Windows icon in the lower-left corner of the main screen.
    • Select All apps, and then find your game in the list. Check if you encounter the same issue.

    We also recommend signing in to a different user profile. This can help determine if this is due to corrupted user profile. Here are the steps:

    • Press the Windows button on your device or keyboard, or select the Windows icon from the bottom-left corner of the main screen.
    • Select your account name from the top-left corner of the menu, and then select Switch account.
    • Sign in with an account other than the one you were using.
    • Restart the game to see if it works correctly.

    If you don't have a different user profile, kindly perform the steps provided on this link
