I´ve also learned the hard way. But I also prefer to save only the DL Folder to the desktop when installing the new EP and letting all the stories start anew with different constellations! My DL Folder is like a tidy shelf and I know every piece in it, there is nothing needless in it. I learned to keep it like this after it was xxxGB and the game took 10 minutes for loading. Now I keep it just about 1GB, that´s just big enough! Smiley

I thought I had backed everything up.  Apparantly only got part of my downloads, so I have lost loads.  Still hunting for the lovely lemon house on a high cliff I downloaded and having finally sorted out my floating head problem it is back and I can't remember what download fixed it, so you have my sympathy.

Yes, I don't mind starting over, since in my last game before my system crashed i had way to much cc. Now, I'm moderating my download amount.

Find the map to the "hidden burrow", then while on hols get the sim with the map to go there. Talk to Bigfoot enough to befriend him, but thankfully you don't need to move him in Wink

yea, that's happened to me. now I just move them to my hardrive for awhile until I can get everything back up. although there's nothing quite like a fresh start, I can't stand to lose all of my precious downloads...

Whenever I install a new game I make a copy of my downloads folder. Truthfully, most of my families aren't that important to me. Half the time I'm just playing with the maxis sims anyways.

But the starting fresh with downloads and organizing them is a great idea. I wish I had been more thoughtful when I first started out... 'cause that would've been so helpful. x.x I think I may do that one of these days... My game can't take another expansion without a good cleaning. I'm so attached to my downloads it's hard to do.
