Hey @ColdWind133 if you have purchased the game from Origin then you can download and back up your installation files. If you are ripping discs to your PC then this would not be ok.

Hey @ColdWind133 if you own a game on Origin then you can copy your install files for a game by following the steps below:

 

  1. Copy your Origin Game Library folder to wherever you want it.
    • The default location is “C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\”
  2. Set the Origin Game Library Location to the new location.
    • In Origin open up Settings
    • Select the “Installs & Saves” tab.
    • Under “Game library location” select “Change folder…”
    • Locate the new folder.
  3. Start a download for each game you’ve moved.
    • In Origin open up “My Game Library”
    • Find each game you’ve moved.
    • Press “Download”
    • Origin will skip downloading any files that are already there and update any that need to be updated.
  4. When Origin is done updating each game it will be ready to play.

HI,

Thanks for the info so its okay you can have multiple copy's of the same game on a computer not just for the express purpose of back up? I looked over the terms and conditions and tht seemed to be a bad thing just wondering if that's okay.

 

Thanks,
