Needs to download all again!

I started downloading the Unreal Engine, and after about 7GBs of downloading, I had to restart my PC. After the restart, it says the Directory must be empty, so it cannot be resumed. This also happened earlier and I deleted those previous ones and started again. But, I think I need a solution as I have limited bandwidth to deal

Same Thing is happening to me, can’t find a solution :frowning:

The same thing. Very annoying because the installation continues to say “resume” and than the directory must be empty. I have never tried to create a new folder for hosting the presumed continued installation!!!

The same case, And now I don’t sure that developing on ue5 will be easier than on unity after this stupid issue!


So I found a solution that worked for me.

First of all cut the Unreal Engine folder out of the Epic games folder and keep it somewhere else
Secondly when you click on the resume button, the error should no longer appear and the Install button should be active
Finally before you click on Install, copy the Unreal Engine folder back to the Epic Games folder and then Install.

Good luck!


It Worked Thanks :smiley:

Exactly the same problem. I’m not sure if I will be able to develop on UE5 as easily as on Unity after this stupid issue.
