How are you able to copy your saves and tray folders? My mum got me a new laptop for Christmas which I need to transfer my Sims 4 game from our family computer to my new laptop. Also how do you copy the Mods folder for CC? Thanks

You copy your Tray, saves and mods folders on a thumbdrive. Normally they are placed here: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4

How do you manually search and copy it. Also I don't have access to the old computer as that one is broken so I cant get to the save files but is there a way to do this through origin as im using the same account?

@2004_Bumblebee  I'm sorry, but Origin doesn't store your save data.  If you can't get it off your old computer, you can't transfer it to your new one.

 

There are plenty of ways to recover data from an old hard drive, either on your own or with the help of a computer shop.  If you're interested, it shouldn't be that difficult.  But how to go about doing so will depend on your current and previous operating system, the type of hard drive in the old computer, and whether you have the proper equipment with you.
