  3. Do I lose everything if I uninstall games?
1 year ago#1
I'm currently up to 11 titles on my Xbox One. With everything installed, I currently sit at 83% used, so I decided to uninstall 7 of them and kept only 4 on the system. I didn't think about it until after I did so that I might have taken the risk of losing my saves. Do you take that risk, or if I go back and reinstall it at a later time, will the saves and setting still be there?

I can't seem to find the game saves on my system anymore, so it's hard for me to know whether I've lost everything, or they just don't show up since I uninstalled the games.

Thanks.

game saves are apparently stored on the cloud, so you should be ok; but I haven't tested it.

Hmmm, I may have to try reinstalling a game later. Thanks, I'll repost the outcome for future reference.

Install is just the game itself. You don't lose saves when you uninstall a game.

You won't lose your game save. I got a new console and when I reinstalled Forza and Ryse it downloaded my saves from the cloud.

This, I uninstalled AC 4 after beating it then redownloaded it when I got Freedom Cry, and my save was still intact.
