How to Recover Deleted/Lost Xbox One Saved Game Files

According to Xbox, the latest version upgrade brings better support for Windows 10. However, for some users, updating their Xbox will result in data loss of all of their saved games. If you also have encountered such a similar problem as the cases above, and you're unable to get back your saved games on your own, now you can make it with the ways below.  

Method 1. Recover Deleted/Lost Xbox One Game Files with EaseUS Recovery Software

Data recovery from Xbox one is a very complicated task, but possible with the help of capable hard drive recovery software - EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard if the Xbox device is not encrypted. This tool enables you to efficiently recover deleted or lost saved game files on Xbox One hard drive as long as there is no overwriting of data. Apart from the deleted recovery, EaseUS data recovery program also supports recovering files from the formatted hard drive as well as retrieving data from lost/RAW partition on Xbox One.

Things to do before data recovery:

  • Stop using the Xbox One hard drive when you have lost data or game files on it.
  • As Microsoft uses a special connector to attach the hard drive to the Xbox 360, and you won't be able to connect it to your PC directly. To do so, you need to open your Xbox and take out the hard drive. Then, use an HDD Enclosure or SATA to USB converter cable to connect the hard drive to your computer. 
  • Sometimes, the hard drive won't show up in the drive selection interface. If so, you should first solve the "external hard drive doesn't show up" problem. Then, you can perform a follow-up data recovery. 

After all these steps have been made, you can start to recover deleted games saved on Xbox One within three steps. 

Step 1. Select and scan hard drive.

On EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard, select the drive where you lose your data and click "Scan". Wait patiently until this program finishes the scanning, it will find all your lost data on the drive.

Step 2. Find and preview found files on the selected drive.

Check "Deleted Files", "Lost Files" or use "Filter", "Search" to find the lost files on the selected hard drive. You can double-click to open and check the found files.

Method 2. Re-Download Deleted Xbox One Games Munally

If you don't want to try a third-party recovery application to restore deleted or lost game files, you may also choose to download the lost games one by one and re-install them in Xbox One hard drive. And you'll be able to play them again.

1. Run Xbox App > go to "Settings" > click "Account" and "Download History".
2. Find the Games that you've downloaded > select "Download Again".

Wait patiently and let the app finish the downloading process. All the deleted or lost saved games will be available for you to play on Xbox One then.

Conclusion

After you have successfully recovered deleted games saved on your Xbox One, create a backup copy of it. This will be helpful next time when you happen to across hard drive corruption, formatting, damage or accidental deletion. Remember, you can always use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to help you recover data on Xbox One in the mentioned cases.
