Default Re: here's the path to backup EA Origin games

it doesn't work. You would have to catch the game before installing which is next to impossible before install as it does not keep the installers after install even if you check that check box. Trust me, go to that path after you install a game. It will be empty. The reason I made this thread is because that doesn't work. It's a screwup on EA's part or on purpose so we wouldn't be able to actually have a copy of the data.
