Default here's the path to backup EA Origin games

to backup Origin games, you can do it one of two ways. You can backup the whole Origin Games directory (C:\program files(x86)\Origin Games). Or you can go one directory deeper and backup individual games directories inside of the Origin games folder. If you delete the folder of choice just to test and restore that directory, Origin will ask to download again on delete and then let you play again upon Restore of the Orgin games or individual game directory. Thanks goes to Crainger who gave me the hint on how to do this. This is because Origin is supposed to keep game installers for backup but it deletes them upon install of the game instead. so this is the only way to backup your digital download that you may not want to spend hours downloading again.
