Not enough space to download sims 4

★★ Novice

Am I allowed to download the Sims 4 on a flash drive or micro disk or something with more space on it? (not computer expert) I just bought the Sims 4 on Origin, when trying to download its saying that I need 9.28gb or something like that and I only have around 3 gb, how can I play ? Downloads, purchases or more disk space? Helpppppp Frown

I think you can. 

In the options of Origin (click Origin at the top > options > advanced) you can change the location the games are installed to.

In the Origin menu, there should be application settings. Try that

8.2 GB on your C drive is too low in general

 

You should free up some space

Try to free up some space by removing Sims unrelated files. Like photos or videos or anything of that kind. Move that to an external device or something

 

You should be able to do so while you play.
