I have a MAC and I want to move my electronic arts folder from Documents to my hard drive so sims isn't taking up all my space but when I move the folder it creates a new one in documents and can't access the folder I moved to the hard drive.

Unfortunately it's not as easy as just moving the Sims 4 folder or the Electronic Arts folder because the Documents folder is where the game looks for user data and you cannot change this in the game options. You have to create a symlink - https://bluebellflora.com/saving-your-sims-4-folder-to-an-external-drive/
