You won't loose game progress, game saves or your custom content. Before you uninstall/reinstall, just back up your Sims 4 folder to the desktop and all your Sims 4 files should be fine.

I usually cut my Sims 4 folder and paste it to the desktop and then cut/paste it back to the Electronic Arts folder afterwards.

 

Right-click on your Sims 4 folder, select Cut and Paste it to the desktop.

 

Then uninstall Origin. - Manually uninstall the Origin client

You don't need to backup the whole Sims 4 folder, but it's the easiest way to back your Sims 4 files up that I've found. Everything gets saved, including game saves, mods and user options, and you won't loose anything. Standard smile

I played the sims 4 back in 2016 and I had I think 2 expansions on it. The vampire pack and the city one(I can’t remember the specific name) anyways I was downloading CC and I ended up getting a virus on the computer. So my dad worked his magic on the computer and got rid of virus. The bad news is that he restarted the whole computer. He deleted everything from his computer so it was like it was brand new. Three years later which is now, I found my sims 4 game (I have the disk version) I can play the sims 4 but all my expansion packs are gone :/ I don’t remember if I made the back up files for the sims 4 but even if I did they must have been deleted when my dad restarted the whole computer. I really don’t want to repurchase those expansion packs because it’s expensive. Is there away I can get them back? Shouldn’t there be a history of things I purchased? If not then idk ;-;
