Hello, I have a problem! I bought an external hard drive and installed Fortnite on it. The game worked, but when I disconnected the hard drive and pluged it again, the Epic Games Launcher didn't recognized the game files, and it tells me to install it again. (My Epic Games Launcher is installed on my pc)
Can you tell me how can I fix that? Тhank you in advance!

Run the setup again on the drive, as long as the drive letter is the same as when you first installed it it should work, so there is something else happening that the launcher does not like. Better idea is to get a larger SSD or just keep less games on the thing.
