Back Up Your Sims 4 Game Files



Hello, friends! My computer gave me a bad scare today, which reminded me it had been a while since I backed up my Sims 4 game. Consider this your reminder to back up your files, too.

Per EA's instructions, here's how to back up your Sims 4 files.

Windows: Go to My Documents > Electronic Arts. Copy and paste the The Sims 4 folder somewhere safe.

Mac: Open Finder. Go to Documents > Electronic Arts. Copy and paste the The Sims 4 folder somewhere safe.

What do I mean by "somewhere safe"? Ideally, somewhere other than your computer. This can be:

  • Burned to a DVD
  • On a USB drive
  • On a free cloud storage service like Google Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, or iCloud
Back up your Sims 4 files regularly!
