those files are different as it is a different OS. You would not be able to use
the data from a Windows PC on a Mac PC, unless you are running Windows
virtually on your Mac PC of course.
THIS METHOD DOSNT WORK FOR ME
AND THE ORIGIN CLINT KEEP DELETING THE GAME FOLDER I PASTE , AND DOWNLOAD THE GAME THAT I HAVE COPIED .
HOW I BACKUP AND RESTORE MY GAMES WITHOUT ANY ISSUE
there is no other method. Restore the game folders from a backup or download.
Did you follow the correct order?
ps please do not use all caps
thank you so much for that. You saved me a lot of time and money (I was at my download limit for the month)
I will also use it for all the C&C games I just bought
im in a slightly difforent part of this boat. i had all these games on a 1TB HDD, wich alos had my OS on it, but i fresh installed my OS onto a smaller HDD (i have my reasons), and now use the 1TB as a storage drive. so now im trying to figure out how to remap the games so that orgin knows to play them off the 1TB. thanks in advance.

Just go through the instructions 1 and 2 and then click on Origin > Application Settings > Advanced Tab > and under "Downloaded Games" the Choose... button to select a folder on you desired drive. Just make sure it is a slightly different path then those that you already have on the drive.
Then continue with 3-8 but replace C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games in step 6 with the folder that you selected these games to be installed into.
This should do the trick.
I tried but I dont know what I am doing. I cant do it. I paid for the two, I didnt want to work for it. I should get and recieve what I order, I dont know how to do all that computer stuff, that is why I order them.
I just got a new laptop, and I had a few games on my other computer that were hooked up to my origin account but now they arent even in "my games", is there anyway to get them back without the disc(burned in house fire)?
