Inside the your Sims 4 folder you copied and marked as a backup there are additional folders which can help you identify the problem file more quickly.

To see which folder contains the troublesome file, copy the folders across to The Sims 4 folder in My Documents one by one. 

For example, if you think there could be a problem with a save file:

  1. Open your backup folder on your Desktop/home screen and copy the saves folder inside it.
    • To copy a folder on PC, click it and press Ctrl and C on your keyboard.
    • To copy a folder on Mac, click it and press Command and C on your keyboard.
  2. Go to your Documents.
  3. Open Electronic Arts.
  4. Open The Sims 4.
  5. Paste the folder, and choose the option to replace the existing file. 
    • To paste a folder on PC, click it and press Ctrl and V on your keyboard.
    • To paste a folder on Mac, click it and press Command and V on your keyboard.
  6. Start The Sims 4 and see if it will load for you now.
    • If it loads, the problem is not with one of these copied saves.
      • Work through copying the other backup folders across one by one, using the steps above, and testing the game each time.
    • If it does not load, the problem is with one of the copied saves.
      • Delete the saves folder from the Sims 4 folder in your Documents, then try copying each individual save file over from your backup, testing the game after each one.
      • When the game fails to load, that means the most recent file you added is causing the issues. Delete this file both from The Sims 4 folder in your Documents and also from your backup folder or follow How to restore a previous save game in The Sims 4 to try and recover the save file.
