PostSubject: How to clean Origin's files   27/5/2017, 19:04

Below is a step by step guide with pictures in how to clean out Origin's folders. This may help with any issues regarding Origin loading slow or not at all.

Step 1:
In Start menu (or use the Windows key + R) type in (without quotation marks) %programdata% (either hit "enter" or click on the folder)

Step 2:
Scroll down to ORIGIN folder, click OPEN (or right click and select OPEN)

Highlight everything (hold down the ctrl key and click on everything to highlight) and DELETE. EXCEPT LocalContent Exit out.

**I have already done this step but you will have other items in this folder that can be safely deleted**

Step 3:
Go back to START type in %appdata% click on file or hit enter

Step 4: **Two part procedure**
 Step 1:Scroll down to the folder ORIGIN and Delete (Do not open and delete just delete the whole folder!)
 Step 2:Click on APP DATA up on top

Step 5:
Click on LOCAL and OPEN

Scroll to find ORIGIN folder and Delete the whole folder then exit out

Step 6:
Restart your PC

Last and final step: Log back into Origin. (I've noticed that it may take a few minutes to start after deleting those files the first time as new ones are being regenerated)

I am unsure of how to do this on a Mac as I don't use those. If there is a member who plays on a Mac and knows how to clean Origin's files, perhaps they could add to this guide in the reply. Also I am using Windows 10.
