Re-installing Destiny
All Platforms
Sometimes Destiny can get in a state where re-installing is the best way to have a clean slate and remove any issues. 

Common issues that require re-installing:

• Stuck on a frozen or indefinite loading screen
• Encountering a consistent crash in game
• Accessing items or content that cannot be resolved by restoring licenses
• Swapping from a physical to digital, or vice versa
• Getting stuck in Trial mode if you have not deleted the Trial mode before purchasing the full game

When proceeding through re-install steps:  

•USB flash memory and external hard drives are not supported for Destiny, regardless of storage space.  Destiny must be installed to an officially supported internal or attached Hard Drive.
•We advise clearing the cache of your console before reinstalling Destiny. For steps on how to do this, please follow this link to our Help Guide.

Please see the steps below for each console on how to re-install Destiny.
