I do that, too, Matt...

...but, just in case, I also back everything up to my OneDrive.

...of course, finding it again can be problematic LOL!!!

I've had better luck finding things in OneDrive lately...

...but that is only because I'm getting better at remembering file names! hehehehehehee

LOL< Suzanne, at least you have mastered that.... I still have to.
I remember the pictures I saved, but not the names to the set.
Can you imagine how long it takes me to find what I am looking for?
I will have to consider a different way of storing my downloads on my external.

I can't remember file names or creators, but I can remember 90% of the custom content I have in game by my photographic memory.

I have learned the hard way to be better organized with my game. It's taking me months to sort through my downloads folder.

Yes, to all of the above glasses There's a simple answer to the problem of finding the right files (in the folder - you're on your own in the game lol) - BUT it'll never happen --->  If only the cc creators would adapt a uniform way to name their files!  As in:  Creator name first - single item name (chair, desk, whatever)- and a one or two-word modifier.  Those three items one after another with only capital letters designating a new word...no cutesy stars or punctuation... THAT would be wonderful.

We could then search by single item....hopefully then we'd recognize (remember?) the creator...we wouldn't need a file utility (the game would load faster)... in my dreams laughing1

ex. pcChairMarvaSet  - wouldn't that be wonderful!

I have noticed recently many creators have begun using their initials and such in the beginning, and when things are too confusing on what a package is I have been opening it sim Sims 4 studio to check and change the name if needed.

I also have a back up of my CC folders, several actually... I learned the hard way when I lost a beloved CC that isn't available anymore.

Sami - if there is anything specific that you can remember, please put in a wcif question...

...many of us have lots of older cc (like me) and are more than happy to share and/or provide a link to download :D

I came to this section to ask how much cc is too much cc :-D I am always worried I am overdoing it and am going to break the game or my computer or something.

I have collected 1 GB so far but I always see more thing that I desperately need :-D I was always afraid to download more, because I do not know how much the game can take. But so far everything is running smoothely and reading these comments here, I think I can do a lot more cc-shopping :-D

You are definitely in the right place, Brigitte!

I'm currently running 49.1gb in my game load (the active one). Most of it is merged.

If you look in Tech Edge, there are How To's on renaming files, checking for duplicates, and merging cc...

...just in case you're interested :D

I understand how it is when you don't have the things your thinking you want to use.I think you can never have enough cc because you never know what you might want to use to decorate a room or a sims house. Not to mention all the different styles. I decorate my sims house the same way i do my real home, if i like it or its pretty then it goes in. lol, i really don't have a style its pretty much every thing although i do like bright colors.

I have to admit that I am a Custom Content shopaholic. I spend hours and even days finding different CC:, typically it is for specific styles of families that I have in the game. Therefore, each family and home have their own diverse flair. My husband says it seems that I download more than I actually play the game, which is sad but true. I hoping that EA is going to announce Seasons at the EA Play next month, therefore I am preparing my Sims clothing and houses for the potential hopeful expansion. So off to more cc shopping I go flyer

Oh Thank You Suzanne :-) I'll go have a look there now.

I just finished sorting my mods folder by going through every single file, and throwing out what I do not like or will not use. I am up to 2,6 GB. My game still loads fine. It does not even take a minute to load. So, that means I can do a whole lot more cc-shopping right? :-D

I do not use Make-Up, and Hair and clothes. Only furniture and build stuff. That way, maybe I can save some space. And I am not that much interested in the looks of my sims since I rarely really play :-)

I always said "I have a terrible memory", then I started cc shopping and I discovered that I know exactly what i have and what i've never seen before but now have to have. Its amazing how I can sit and cc shop for hours and not have a ton of repeats in my mods folder. But have you ever gone out to buy something for your own house and have no inspiration? Or worse look up from your 50,000 square foot dream villa to your humble abode and wish you could motherlode your life together?
