Yes, it is possible but the first installation of G4TW downloads is still on the c drive. After installation you can move the installation folder to any drive you want (also external drives)

Hello,

I'm not sure this is actually as smooth as that. What about the registry keys?
How will the system know you have moved the game?

You can even install the Sims 4 without any mention in the registry.
There is an all-in-one download of just the installation-folder which you can download to and play from any drive you want.
I downloaded it directly on an external drive and play it from there. The only problem is that the default language is English and without an key in the registry it is pretty dificult to change that language.

I'm at lost. So can I move around the one I got from this site or do I have to get the "all-in-one"? Where is it though?

Hi there,

Unfortunately we cannot update an existing torrent any more, but this is what you're looking for: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t19572-how-to-move-the-sims-4-to-another-partition-after-installation-fix

No need to re-download a whole new torrent for that.
Please keep us updated, good luck!

Thanks your all your help. But I just realized when I installed windows 8 c drive magically got 10 gb from the drive d without me doing nothing. Quite annoying thing. I'll just left it as it is.
If I start struggling with the space it'll be helpful.

update: whenever I try to move the get to work etc to the sims' folder pc crashes and shows blue screen lol. my pc is literally abut to die so I deleted everything I downloaded. still thank you very much.

As soon as you have the Sims 4 installed you can safely move the installation folder to any other drive (even external)
