    Copy a Microsoft Store game to hard drive?


    Me and my brother both own Gears of War 4 on the PC. However for some ungodly reason the download is over 100gb. My internet isn't the best and it took me a day and a half to download this game. Now what I'd normally do with literally any other game is copy it to my hard drive and then paste it onto his computer and let Steam recognize it but there isn't anyway that I can find that will allow me to copy the game to my hard drive for his computer.


    Is there anything I'm missing?


    Also the fact that I have to do extra work to gain access to the files on MY computer only to find that my ORGANIZATION won't let me do anything with them is ridiculous...

    :)

    Stored files in Hard Drive

    I'd like to know if there's a way of listing all the files stored in my hardware and arrange them by size, because I want to keep track of what's on my hard drive. Thanks, I hope you answer.

    You can use Windows search. Just search for *.* on a desired drive. When list is done just arrange them by size LOL.

    You can do it via command line as well and make an output text file showing files and their sizes (but without arrangement)

    Microsoft Store not seeing second hard drive

    To preface this issue, I have Forza Horizon 3 and all of it's DLC bought on Microsoft Store. I was playing the game perfectly fine until one day last week when the game wasn't seeing any of the DLC I had installed.

    I tried many different solutions and decided that I would just try an uninstall/reinstall. However, this turned out to be the worst course of action. I tried to reinstall the game by pressing the "Install" button on the store...and nothing would happen.
    I then restarted my PC and upon clicking the "Install" button again, I would receive a drop down menu of places to install.

    Now this is where the actual issue comes into play. On the drop down menu, I no longer can see my second hard drive in the list of available places to install. I had the game installed on my second hard drive before I uninstalled it. So, why can the Store no
    longer see my hard drive? No other drives have enough space to install the game to them.

    As it stands at this moment, I can no longer play the game that I bought just because the Store cannot see a certain drive anymore. And before anyone asks, yes, everything else can see the second hard drive.
