Lately I have been experiencing issues installing some digital games on my Xbox one. Specifically killer instinct and halo the master chief collection. It'll get to a certain point in the install (30 percent or 65 percent) then say the install stopped. After I restart it from where it left off it seems to do fine, but I'm still confused why some games are doing this. And if restarting to finish the install may cause some data corruption or something.
The only time I've had this issue was with Forza 6, and it was related to the external drive. My understanding is that the Xbox One will keep installing on external drives even in sleep mode, but I think my external drive shuts itself off after a certain amount of time of being plugged into a device that's "inactive", so I've had a couple of downloads "stop" overnight. I've been able to simply resume them all the next time I booted up the Xbox, except with Forza 6, I made the mistake of installing on the internal drive instead of resuming the external drive's download. After realizing that error midway through, I just let it finish installing to the internal drive, deleted the partial install on the external drive, and then moved the fully installed game to the external afterwards. Even with all this, it didn't corrupt or lose anything, and that includes my add-on stuff for buying the ridiculous Ultimate edition which could have easily gotten lost in the wash by being tied to the external hard drive install or something. The system seems set-up pretty well to handle this stuff.
