Hi,
ive just got a weird collection of i guess virtual Xvd drives in my device manager.
Can i just uninstall them or will it conflict with xbox games?

How many Xbox games have you got installed? All of those are game files.

It's an virtual disk drive installed by the Microsoft Gaming Filesystem Driver. Xbox Play Anywhere games are essentially unmodified from their Xbox One counterparts, so their data files are stored in the native Xbox Virtual Disk (.xvd or .xvc) container format, and this virtual disk drive is used to load and access them.

I would just leave them.
