Lots of CC gone after moving game to another drive

★★★★ Novice

Hello,

 

Yesterday I moved my Sims 4 to another drive (F drive) using Origin since I was running out of space on my C drive. Everything seemed fine until my default eye cc did not work. I brushed it off since they were not particularly important and then I saw my sim. Lots of CC was missing such as her hair, her pants, her shoes and most of her makeup. I thought Origin might have uninstalled a bit of my CC after moving the game, so I put in my backup Mods folder that I made before moving the game. The issue still persists and the CC is still gone. The files are still there, but in game they aren't. Help please!!

Moving the Game does NOT move where Mods and CC are stored. If you manually moved the Mods folder the game can no longer find it.

I didn’t manually move the Mods folder. Most of my cc and mods are still there and working.

Then you just need to put the other Mods and CC into the same Mods folder. Here is an easy way to find out which folder your game is using: https://sims4.crinrict.com/en/2018/07/how-to-find-your-user-folder

I already put all the mods and cc in the same Mods folder.

Yes, but is it the same one the game uses?

In that case those that do not show up are probably in a packed format and needs to be unpacked.
