  1. Playing/accessing a game from different drive on PC


    So i recently installed a new SSD on my PC and set it as my boot drive. however, I had already installed 4 games from the xbox app on my HDD before I installed the SSD. the games don't show up on the xbox app -- I looked through programfiles and windowsapps and could only find minor traces of the games. Even if I can't play the games and I would have to reinstall them, does anyone know how to delete the games that I previously installed so that I dont have ~400 gigabytes of storage on my HDD that i cant even use?


    -If i need to be more clear just let me know :

    :)

    Will Playing Games Damage My PC

    Hi Jonah,

    Your specs are fine for playing moderate games, it would not have the power to play top end games . ..

    Playing games will not damage a Laptop or PC, generally the only damage that occurs over time is possibly needing to replace your keyboard from the constant keyboard access

    Since you are playing online games, hard drive access will not be constant and wear out your hard drive, so you should be Okay !
