Install the sims 4 and expansions on external hard drive

Post by Oona on Mon 14 May 2018, 22:00

Hello,

I recently bought a new laptop.
Unfortunaly it doesn't have enough memory to install sims 4 with all it's expansions.
So I bought a portable hard drive with 1000mb storage.

But now I can't seem to figure out how to install the sims on it?
I can select it in the install menu but then this pops up


My laptop still wants to install it on my pc instead of on my hard drive.

Please help me!

There are 2 possibilities:

1. Attach your external drive to your old PC and copy the folder The Sims 4 from C:\Program Files (x86) over to your external drive.

OR

2. Install the base game in the default drive C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.
When that's done, move the folder The Sims 4 to your external drive.
Download the other DLC's and copy the folders from the downloads to your external drive folder The Sims 4.

Thanks! I moved the files from C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 to my hard drive! 
And it works! 
Now I only need to install the DLC but I assume I won't face any issues with that.
Again, thank you!
