  1. Different accounts when moving HDD to another PC


    Hi All,


    I have just moved the main HDD of my PC to a second PC, and I have noticed that when I start the second PC the Windows 10 accounts are different. Why? where can I find the old accounts?


    Best regards,

    Simone

    1. May I know from where did you purchase this Game?
    2. Is this an Xbox or a PC Game?
    3. What is the name of the Game you want to move?

    Hi Johan,

    It is possible that your
    HDD was unreadable
    causing the error message to appear. We recommend that you perform these troubleshooting steps and check if there are any changes:


    • Shutdown
      your
      PC.

    • Unhooked
      the
      HDD
      and
      turn on
      your
      PC.

    • Reconnect
      your
      HDD
      and
      restart
      your
      PC.

    If the issue persists, we suggest that you contact your
    laptop/computer's manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how it goes.

    Regards.
