    How do i delete my xbox games on a external drive that has been corrupted?

    Hi, Sagehealer! Thank you for reaching out.
    I'm AJ, an Independent Advisor for the Xbox Community.
    I'm sorry you are experiencing issues uninstalling games.

    • Would you mind giving this a try?

    - Press and hold your console's power button until it shuts down.
    - Unplug your external storage unit.
    - Unplug the console's power cord for 5 minutes. If you have the original Xbox One, you'll have to unplug the power supply unit from both the console and the outlet.
    - Plug everything back together.
    - Check if these games still occupy some of your storage space.

    • If these games still take up some of your storage space or reappear under "My games and apps", it would be best to format your external storage unit.

    To do so:

    - Go to Settings > System > Storage devices.
    - Select your external storage unit.
    - Select the format option.

    Please let me know if this works, I'll be looking forward to your reply.
    Best regards.

    Xbox purchased game content not downloading

    Sorry to hear it. This may be due to a corruption in the drive. Please try deleting the games and then redownload them and the DLC to an external hard drive.
    I currently don't have access to an external drive, I downloaded the game a few times, but ill try to do a factory reset with deleting all data. Thanks for your help!

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    It is very likely that the data that was on your external hard drive has been corrupted. I recommend formatting the hard drive and reinstalling games. If this happens again, your hard drive may is defective, contact the manufacturer for repair or replacement.
