  1. Microsoft Store download keeps increasing


    I recently bought Forza Horizon 4 on the Microsoft Store.

    However it never stopped downloading, the download went way past the 64,8 GB that the game was supposed to be.

    I've tried multiple things to fix it already like, running the troubleshooter which claimed it had fixed the problem yet the problem persisted,

    I've also tried changing my computer's time, I've also tried the Windows PowerShell option a lot of people suggest which lead to no result because it couldn't locate my Windows Apps folder.


    This problem hasn't happened with any other MS Store app, not even with the game's demo.


    Does anyone know how I could fix this problem or is it hopeless?

    :)

  3. Microsoft Store Download size keeps increasing

    Hi Simon,

    Since resetting the Store and running the troubleshooter didn't help, I suggest clearing and resetting the Windows Store cache. WSReset is a built-in program present in Windows 10 which
    can be used to clear and reset Windows Store cache. This utility will clear Windows Store and app cache files. Since it deletes all cache files of Windows Store, there are chances that it'll fix your Windows Store related problems. You may follow these steps:

    1. Type cmd in the search box, then select Command Prompt.
    2. Type: WSReset.exe
    3. Allow the process to complete, then restart your computer.

    If the issue persists, you might have to reinstall Store. Since it's a built-in app, you will have to resort to using Windows PowerShell instead
    of the normal way of reinstalling an app. Windows PowerShell is a Windows command-line shell designed especially for system administrators.

    To uninstall the app, make sure that it’s not running in the background. Then, click the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell, right-click on the best match and select Run as administrator. In the elevated PowerShell
    prompt, follow these steps:

    1. Type the following command to list all default apps, and then hit Enter: Get-AppxPackage -allusers | Select Name, PackageFullName
    2. In the list of default apps, locate the Store, and then take note of its PackageFullName.
    3. To reinstall the Store, type the following command but replace the PackageFullName to the Store's PackageFullName that you took note of in step 2, and then hit Enter:

      Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\PackageFullName\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
    4. After the command has completed, restart your PC.

    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.

    Store download size keeps on increasing

    Hi Tony,

    The issue your facing with the download size that keeps on increasing in Windows Store could be caused by several reasons. This could be related to a corrupted system file or the application data. For us to resolve your concern, kindly answer the question
    below:

    • We would like to confirm if the same issue occurs only on a specific application being downloaded or is it happening on any that you have attempted to download?
    • Were there any recent changes made on you computer aside from the troubleshooting you have completed?
    • Were there any updates recently installed on your computer?

    We look forward to your response to our queries.
