Moving to external hard drive + upgrading to 64 bit windows.

Post by ryanparrott01 on Mon 29 Jan 2018, 02:43

Hello, I just had two quick questions about the sims 4 in regards to some things I'm going to be doing on my computer. I need to upgrade my windows to Windows 7 64 bit instead of windows 32 bit, which I have the files for, I just need to burn onto a disk. I was wondering if that is going to screw with the sims 4 that I have already installed? I don't know if I should move the files over before I upgrade windows or after. If I could get some help it would be much appreciated  Smile

Hello,

Personally I would suggest to back up all important data to an external source - including your Sims 4 installation - before you upgrade. I have no first-hand experience myself with that (just re-collecting what other users have reported over time), as I tend to do fresh installs only of Windows, but yes...
