  1. Can't install games in my external HDD only on xbox app.


    When I go to Picture profile>>settings>>general>>game installation options I can see both of my memory internal SSD "C:" and external HDD "D:" but when I try to install something it only shows the internal memory. I tried to install other games in other plataforms and it wroks normally.PS: My xbox its in portuguese.Recent edit: My HDD shows up only when I try to install "astronner" and "Goat simulator..."

  2. Xbox One External HDD Switch To Another Xbox One.

    Hi everyone, this November I will buy an Xbox One X. I currently own an Xbox One with games downloaded to a 1tb portable external hdd. Can I simply hook up the external hdd to the XBX without having to do anything technical, or will there be more to that?
    Thanks. ��

    remove game data from xbox game in windows 10

    I appreciate your reply. It seems that the game progress was saved to your Xbox account associated on your computer that's why you can't play the game from the beginning. I recommend that you remove the account on your computer by performing the following
    steps:

    1. Press the Windows icon, then select the gear icon to access Settings.
    2. Select Accounts.
    3. Under Email & app accounts, click the Microsoft account, then click Remove.

    I also suggest that you reset the Xbox app on your computer so that we could ensure that no account is linked to it. To get started, kindly follow these steps:

    1. Press the Windows key, then select the gear icon to access Settings.
    2. Go to Apps.
    3. Under Apps & features, locate the Xbox app.
    4. Click the Xbox app, then select Advanced options.
    5. Click Reset.

    Let us know if that works for you. We'd be glad to further assist you.

    Can't install games in my external HDD only on xbox app.

    Install GOW4 on Games HDD, but keep other Apps on Windows SSD.

    JUst as the title suggests. I finally finished GOW3 and GOW Judgement via backwards compatability on my xbox one, and now was install GOW4 on my desktop, but haven't got the space on the SSD(C:\) and want to install the game to my Games HDD.

    Is there a way to install a single game/windows 10 app to a different hdd, yet keep the majority of the smaller ones on the windows drive? A quick search/google only told me how to change the default location. I dont want to do this.
    I just want to install GOW4 (and Halo Wars 2) on my Games Drive.

    Thanks,
