Closed. D Drive Assistance
Having a number of frustrations with trying to get everything moved over to my D Drive and I was hoping someone might know what's going on or know of a solution.
I created a GAMES folder to install everything in to- some are hard copies, some are digital via Origin. I cannot find the folder that usually goes into the My Documents where your saves and downloads etc would normally be. And for whatever reason, even though I deleted out all my old sims info and folders from the C drive, when I load my game, my old CC and saves are appearing... but I don't have them dropped anywhere on the D (backup on an external F drive) and cannot figure out what the heck I'm missing at this point. Is that something I need to manually create? I'm beyond frustrated at the moment.
Also turns out I have two origin accounts with different EPs and SPs Sigh. The origin helpdesk person I talked to Sunday said it wouldn't cause an issue with accessing both accounts for the packs, but alas... not so. I'm ready to pull out my hair.
Edit: So I guess I didn't delete the Sims 3 Folder from My Documents on C, so I guess it's pulling from there... even thought the game is on a different drive can I just move that whole folder over to D?
You can back it up on D but you can not run the CC and stuff from D. I don't use Origin as I end up having issues with it.
Basically if you remove it from My Documents on C, Sims will just make a brand new folder there.
You could run Sims from a removable drive and it would not matter.
My Documents location is set by windows you have to tell it to move the My Documents folder if you want it to us a different locations. Here is a link that explains how to do it. I don't know what version of windows you use but it should be similar for all versions.
Aha, okay- I was trying to clean all of the clutter off my C so I would quit maxing out my space
Not the most computer literate and struggling with Windows 10, but I'll definitely be trying that link if I need the space! Thank you so much Skye!
And thank you Allison, appreciate you walking me through it in Slack.
Not a problem
