Sims have saved on different drives :S

Post by simmeremma on Thu 23 Aug 2012, 11:02

Help I recently installed my sims on my secondary (E) drive........or so i was telling it to do so.

Last night i noticed that some of my sims didnt save on my secondary drive like i told it to, but some of them did save to my Master drive (c) drive.

I saved the base game on E and so it did....the files are there and everything......but it saved it C also.
i was saving all games the same but they have minds of there own.

Here are a few pictures to show what i mean............Please mind my dog as my back ground Ermahgerd)









If anyone can suggest anything it would be a big help.

p.s My game runs great and saved fine in fact it's best it's ever been lol just dont want it to conflict and destroy both hard drives

Hello,

Don't worry, you won't destroy anything and there's no problem in having the game installed on different partitions or even HDD's.
I assume "save" = "install", in your case?

The only thing I can think of is that you forgot to change the installation folder for the expansions. They won't auto-install on E:\, you have to choose "Custom" installation for all the expansions and then manually change the installation folder.

Also, as for your last picture, that's showing the location of the Start Menu shortcut, not the location of where the file/game is actually installed.

Hello,

I think it's easier if I take a look at this via TeamViewer, if you don't mind.
Please contact me via the Forum's chatbox when you see me online on the Forum.
