Vr Has Corruped My Hard Drive Twice

Level 2

I have an oculus quest 2 and often connect it to my pc play steam games and live stream it. Since I started doing that, my PC has frozen twice upon closing two separate games. I brought it to two different pc repair places, and both found that my hard drive had been corrupted. It's been about a year since this last happened, and I'm afraid to hook up my oculus to my pc in case it corrupts my hard drive again. The games that broke it were Vrchat and Five Night's at Freddy's Help Wanted. I hope there is a fix to this because I love playing games in Vr and I don't want to pay for another hard drive.

That is a very odd situation, indeed, and I'm sorry that happened. Did the repair place tell you exactly what they thought caused the hard drive corruption? Connecting the headset to your PC via Link merely streams the game to the headset, the PC handles all the processing, so I'd perhaps update the Oculus PC app/repair it, as well as uninstall and reinstall those apps in question. Lemme know if you try these things. It might also be useful if you ensure that your PC is 100% compatible with Link.

Now you're playing with power...SUPER power!
