@sonicfan117 I'm not sure that I'm understanding your question correctly, but when you save a backup you should be saving the files that include the information from your game saves and other relevant files/folders. This article should be helpful in explaining what files you will need for your backup: https://sims4.crinrict.com/eng/2014/09/save-games/

 

If an expansion was installed when you made and played your game, any aspects of your game save, library items, etc., that involved that expansion pack should be preserved in your backup, if you backup the correct files. Obviously the expansion pack will also need to be installed on your game when you use the backup for any recovery of your game files and so forth.
