Getting the “Repair failed” error in League of Legends? Here’s what to do.

A number of League of Legends players have complained of a rather frustrating second-grade error, which is encountered while trying to repair the game, after an initial glitch or bug attack. Typically, the “Repair Failed” error-message pops out, leaving you locked out of the game.

While several factors could be in play here, we have come up with a handful of solutions.

Fix: League of Legends Repair Failed

If you encounter the “Repair Failed” error during or after a repair procedure, it’s possible that you’re running an old disk drive or you’re having permission/privilege issues (to write on the disk).

In any case, below are some fixes for you (in the outlined order):

Note: Ensure that you have a stable internet connection (Wi-Fi or mobile network). Also, ensure that the game is not running any background process.

Solution 1: Restart PC

Once you get the error-message, follow the steps mentioned below:

  • force-close the game
  • restart computer
  • reopen the game and then try the repair again.

If the error persists, there are obviously bigger issues, in which case, you can proceed with the next fix.

Solution 2: Free Up Drive Space

League of Legends requires a minimum of 8GB (free space) on your disk drive. And if your system falls short in this aspect, you may encounter errors such as this.

So, check your disk drive; if it’s short of the recommended memory, clear off junk (nonessential) files on your PC.

No changes? Proceed to the next fix.

Solution 3: Verify Disk Drive

To do this:

  • go to the Start menu
  • key in “chkdsk” + Enter
  • follow the prompt commands to complete the verification and then repair as appropriate (if there’s any error).

Solution 4: Verify RAM

If your disk drive is verified okay, and the error persists, the problem is probably a RAM issue.

To verify your RAM:

  • go to the Start menu
  • key in “memory” in the searchbar
  • find and select Windows Memory Diagnostic > Restart now and check for problems
  • run the troubleshooter after restart.

Any identified error would be accompanied by a recommended fix/solution.

Closing Note

Ultimately, if the error persists, you may have to run a “clean reinstall”; by uninstalling the game and removing all associated files, before reinstalling a fresh package.
