Installing Sims 2 expansion pack

\015 How do you back up Sims 2, as suggested in instructions, before installing any expansion pack. I tried 3 different types of expansion packs and the installation was not complete. I had to uninstall to get back my original game. When I did load the expansion pack, it reads load disc and the disc in already there.\015\012Also, I am trying to install multiple expansion packs to Sims 2 Deluxe\015

Answers :

Copy the neighborhood files and put them into documents then when you uninstall and reinstall move the files back in merge them and you will have all your towns. \015\012

For The Sims 2, go to My Documents\\EA - and copy the "The Sims 2" folder and paste it somewhere else on your computer. You can rename it to "TS2 Backup Original"... then add one expansion and then do the above again (copy/paste the "The Sims 2" folder) and rename it to something like "TS2 Backup University" (or the name of whatever expansion you're adding).

But realize that these backups will have your people and neighborhoods EXACTLY as they were at the time you copied them. So if you install an addon (or 6) and then play for 3 months, and then decide you want to go back to a previous backup, you WILL NOT have all of that work that you've done.

If you have the hard drive, space, though... I would recommend making a backup after each expansion addition... and then make a backup once a week or two to save/backup your progress. Also, if you download a ton of custom content, like me, keep a copy/backup of that folder with your other backups. =)

Good luck and have fun!

Im in a rut. Me and my friend decided to swap Sims 2 expansion packs since she has ones I dont have and vice versa. My expansion packs are Unviersity, Nightlife, and Open for Buisness. She has Family Fun Stuff, Ikea Stuff, Pets, and Seasons. How do I set it up where I can use one of my expansion pack games to run the Sims 2 instead of one of hers? Is there a certain order I have to install the games in? Or can I set it up on my own? Thanks.
