Install Origin on two Hard drives ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello i'm trying to install my Origin games on two separate Hard drives. I just Bought the Origin HumbleBundle and the games it comes with are 12Gb and what not only game I currently have is BF3 on my SSD and I don't want to put more games on my SSD I rather put them on my 3Tb . I don't know why they don't make it as easy as Steam. Any help will be appreciated smile.gif

With Origin already open, click Origin on the top left, then Application Settings.

On the advanced tab you can choose where games should be installed to. By default it will be C: Program Files/Origin... but you can set it to wherever you want. I just made a folder called Origin Games in another HDD and set it to install there.

or move preinstalled games with Steam Mover (NTFS junction program, not steam specific)
