I have one on the way, but it won't take a short time, so if possible I would cancel the order if it were not possible to play with an external hard drive.

Okay so just to confirm because my laptop is really old and but my partners is new but I don’t want to take up there storage. I can run the game fully off the external not having any saved data on the laptop it’s self?

You can only move the game files to an external folder. The game also creates a user folder in documents but that can't be redirected. So your user data will always be in the hard drive of your partner.
Also running the game from external drives has it's downsides, especially when you remove the drive and it potentially gets a new drive assigned.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
The user folders are only created under Documents and can not be moved to an external drive. You can have a copy there for backup purposes but that is all.
Hi! I copied my sims 4 files onto an external hard drive and then copied the files from the hard drive onto a device that does not support origin (Latest model of touchscreen chromebook) can I open it on a device like this? If so, how do I open it from my files?
