Do I need to keep the files to run the game?

Post by EnderWolf1013 on Mon 18 May 2015, 03:35

Okay so I installed everything in the complete sims 3 game + expansions pack and I was wondering if I can delete most of/some of the files and if the game will still work, because all that stuff is about 20 GB which is a lot for me.

Hi and welcome to the Games4theworld forums.

Yes, you can delete the installers once you completed the installation. Though it may be hard for you (or not if you have high DL speeds) to reinstall them since you have to DL it again.

Hi there,

But I personally do recommend keeping the download .RAR files for future reference. You can store them on an external HDD for example.
If storage really is an issue, then yes, you can remove them. But like D 'Eradicated stated, you'll have to re-download them completely then, should you need to reinstall the game any time in the future.
