Installing G4tW Sims 4 on a new PC? Empty Installing G4tW Sims 4 on a new PC?

I will be trading in my current computer for a new one tonight. I am in the process of backing up files etc. I have all of the G4tW expansion packs up through magic (and am downloading university as we speak). But, I think I installed the base game from origin using an account my friends & I used to share. 

When I get the new computer set up, can I simply copy the entire Sims 4 file from my external hard drive back to the Program Files location?

Hello and welcome to the G4TW Forums first of all @FerretMom,

Yes, simply copying the installation of your current The Sims 4 (to the new computer), is the most straightforward solution in that case. If you have an installation up to Realm of Magic, the folder will be about 35 GB in size.

Good luck!
