Installation of Game in C Drive

Post by Lilsie on Tue 14 Nov 2017, 13:07

Hi, I wanted to ask how to install the SIMS 4 in another drive as it usually installs in C drive.
My C drive is full, but i tried thrice and even when i choose to change the installation drive and folder it still installs in C drive.
Can you help with this? Should i do it manually by moving the Folder?
Please Help.!

With the G4TW downloads the base game will ALWAYS go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.
No way to avoid this unfortunately, so either make enough free disk-space in disk C: or download the base game elsewhere where you have a real choice where to put it.
As soon as it is installed there you must manually move it to any other location (drive, folder so).
However make sure you do not move the folder The Sims 4 inside a folder called Origin, Origin Games, Electronic Arts, ZLOrigin or ZLOrigin games.
