      Creating a separate post for every update would be too much of a hassle. I will be posting future updates on google drive here only.

  1. Robin

    Can you please upload Genshin impact v1.2 full game data (16+GB) i uninstalled the game mistakely and stuck at verify error everytime.

  2. ARKY

    Dude, can I make a request? Can you upload the latest patch again? Because it says when I verify it some files are missing and proceeds to download the whole thing again. Pretty please?

  3. wintrysphere

    I will update links to 1.3 in some time. And again its not possible and feasible to upload whole game to gdrive so I will be uploading the preload-update only like last time I did with 1.2.

    • WOT?

      Full data please, i can invite you to my shared drive for uploading the 1.3 full data.
      Just give me your google email and it will be done right away and after that you can upload it, please.

      I was uninstalled my genshin whole data by mistakes :'(

    • WOT?

      Can you please do it fast if possible, I really need it right now. πŸ™
      and if you need a storage or drive to store the files, I can give you one.

      Just tell me your gmail address (please uses fake acc) and I will share my drive to your Google Drive,
      When I reply it’s done, after that you can just check it on “/drive/shared-drives”.

      or you can just mail me your gmail here at

      It will be all yours. HOW??
      you will be the managers of my shared drive and then I’ll remove my right on that shared drive so it’s fully and only yours shared drive. πŸ™‚ How about it?!

      • Lord Dio

        Here a v1.1-v1.3 Full Data πŸ™‚

        If you already updated to v1.1 you need to edit config.ini to:
        Location: “\Genshin Impact\Genshin Impact Game”


        The first thing to do is to edit the config.ini, after that- open the launcher and let it update if you haven’t. If it done updating the launcher, go update the games and pause it afterward.
        and Then close the launcher (remember to exit it on the system tray too), Go to the folder
        “\Genshin Impact\Genshin Impact Game” see if the files named is created, if it is “created” go copy (don’t cut/move in case something wrong) the downloaded files to the folder where’s created, and then delete the files with .tmp in it. after that rename, the files that you downloaded (just adds a .tmp in it) then, open the launcher again. and click download, Tada! it will be verifying and installing the files.


    • Lord Dio

      It’s because the files has 18gB size, and is your drive default from google? I mean you need to upgrade it or get a shared drive if you want unlimited storages but free ^_^

  4. Lord Dio

    Here, I made a lot of copy, In case some of you get quota exceeded πŸ™‚
    and also, can someone please post it on reddit because it will really be a great help to some people, and don’t just post the drive’s link but just redirect it to this post.

    Thank you and Your Welcome in Advance πŸ˜‰
