1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Questions on external hard drive installation. on: March 24, 2007, 08:55:35 am
I apologize for starting a new thread, but I could not find a post that broached the subject of installing games to an external hard drive.  I had previously had Sims2 loaded on my old laptop.  My hard drive failed and my computer was sent to the manufacturer (with my copy of Sims2 in the DVD rom drive).  It happened twice after that, so I decided to get a new computer and an external hard drive and load it onto that.  Before doing so, I contacted EA games and it took them 3 weeks to respond with a mere "not suggested" response.  So I just directed the setup to install to the E drive.  No problemo.  However, I have duplicate folders on my C: and E: drives.  That seems rather unneccesary.

Do I need to have the base copy of the game on my C drive?  What do I need to have, where?  When I download anything they automatically load into the file on the C drive, but I have a copy of everthing on the external drive.  If it is duplicitous, what do I do to have everything in order?  I'm a little reticent to experiment since everything works well as it is.  

It's pretty obvious to me that most of the folks posting here have much more experience and knowledge about this computer stuff than I do, so if anyone has any suggestions, please respond.  I appreciate any help.  :worship:
