  1. Game data not saved


    Hey, so I recently built a new pc and wiped all my drives so I could start from scratch because I basically only have games on my computer that just have saved data when I redownloaded them. This is not the case for Forza 4. I have Forza 4 from the windows store ad I have played it a bunch but when I reinstalled it on my new computer it started me from the start and I lost all my game data. I really don't use Microsoft store that often and don't know if you can uninstall and reinstall on your account and keep your data as a bunch of other games. Is there any way for me to get that data back or

    :)

    remove game data from xbox game in windows 10

    Hi Henry,

    If you are signed in to your Xbox account when playing the game, your game saves will be stored to the cloud storage. If you're playing the game without signing in your Xbox account, you can reset the game from Settings to remove your game saves. Let's try
    to isolate this issue so that we could find a way for you to remove your game data. Kindly perform the following steps below:

    Step 1: Reset the game from Settings.

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

    Step 2: Remove Temporary files on your computer.

    1. Press the Windows key on your keyboard, and then click the Settings icon.
    2. Select System, and then select
      Storage
      .
    3. Select This PC and click on
      Temporary files
      .
    4. Select Temporary files.
    5. Click Remove files.
    6. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

    Please respond to this thread to let me know how the issue progresses. Similarly, if you have more questions, please inform me by replying to this post.

    Game data not saved

    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.
