You would have to perform these steps separately for each new location you move games to. Once you've verified the games, it doesn't matter on which location they are installed - you can continue launching without problems.

Re: reconnecting origin to a installed game

10000% *, if I don't have the necessary free space on the disk, this is complete madness. I want to move my games to another hard drive. Ultimately I copied all of them, BUT if I try to start the download as mentioned above, it fails. Because the "super-smart" client detected theres not enough space on the disk. How about to implement a PROPER scan function?!

Re: Can I transfer my origin games to a new computer?

★★★★ Novice

Hello Tom,

 

I am trying to move my Origin games from my original hard drive to a new solid state drive. I have copied my Origin Games folder to the new drive and changed the game library location in my Origin account, but I do not see a "download" button for the games. I have attached an image of what it looks like when I click on a game in My Game Library when looking for the download button. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you!

 

Sincerely,

 

Darren

Hi Darren,

 

The download button should be where the Play button is now. What happens if you instead click on Play?

Hi Tom,

 

When I hit played Mass Effect Andromeda launched. Does that mean it is saved on my new drive? Thanks!

Hi Darren,

 

Glad to hear that the game launched!

 

The game is now on your new drive. The save games however, will most likely still be in your Documents folder, which might be on the old disc. You can double-check in that folder to see if your games are saved there.

 

Kind regards,

i read much method as that, but i want to ask why doesn't origin make this as a function as modern day, much great game is over 50GB, a hard disk eater, as coming DLC, the final diskspace would over 60GB or ever more in the future, so i really hope origin can make a function for that, may EA forward the issue of EA gamer to "origin" , so making them to take improvement much faster

Hi,

 

That is a great question, and good feedback.
