How To Change Download Location Epic Games

Hi CoinFlyer98353,

Change epic install location

Sep 23, 2021 The detailed steps are: Step 1: Copy the game folder under the Epic game install location on your computer and then paste it to the folder of another drive like D: Epic Games. Step 2: Rename the folder in the new location to “.-temp ” (. refers to the game name). Step 3: Go to Epic Games Launcher to uninstall the game in the original location. Extensive tutorials, like the commands used in my videos, are on my website.You can also support me there!- Just type video title i. Shut down Epic Games Launcher and any game that is running. Transfer the game’s folder to another location. Run Command Prompt as an administrator. 3.1 Type “Command Prompt” in the search bar on the desktop. 3.2 Right-click on the result and then, select “Run as administrator”.

Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. I'd be happy to help.

By default your games will save on the C: drive and the common location of saved games is C:UsersNAMESaved GamesGAME. Once you find the folder you can backup the files to another storage device.

The games you play will create a saved folder for data locally but depending on where you bought the game, the cloud storage will also kick in. I know for Steam you have to check the game and make sure it has a cloud icon to know it supports it.

You should be able to move the files from your user files in the C: drive if you played from Game pass, you just would need to locate the game's folder in the Program files section of your C: drive, which is where Steam installs by default.

You don't need to be an Windows Insider to install the Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta) app. It requires Windows 10 (latest update) and the Xbox (beta) app. What is the error you are getting when trying to install?

Best Wishes,

When it comes to games that use the Epic Games platform, it might be confusing and difficult for players to move their games to another location.

Even though that’s true, once you understand the concept and how moving a game impacts the Epic Games suite, it might seem straightforward and obvious.

Nevertheless, it isn’t necessarily the case that moving games is difficult with the Epic Games launcher. On the contrary, when it comes to games from launchers, which has become the standard nowadays, usually players get overwhelmed by the process of moving their games to other game paths.

Move an Epic Game to Another Folder, Drive, & PC

I urge you to follow the steps carefully, as this process is a tad bit difficult, and you might lose your whole game data if you make the wrong move.

The steps that we will outline below will apply for all three changes in destination, i.e. another folder, drive and/or PC. Here is how to do it:

  1. Backup the game that you want to move. Navigate to: C: Program Files Epic Games *name of the game* (this is the default location, for you it might be different).
  2. Launch the Epic Games application and open Library.
  3. Click the three dots next to the game that you want to move and press Uninstall.
  4. After that, start installing the game again to the location where you want it to be. Once it gets to 2-3 percent click the three dots again and cancel the install.
  5. Exit the Epic Games launcher, and then copy the backup to the new installation destination, and press Yes, to all to replace the files that are downloaded.
  6. Open the Epic Games Launcher and then resume the download. Files will get verified in a few minutes depending on your system.

Soon after the files get verified, and the necessary resources get downloaded, you will be able to play the game from that file destination.

The same will go for moving the game to another PC. Just start the download, cancel it, copy it to the folder in which the installation has started, and resume the installation!
