SO you can also do this via an external hard drive as well if you wish to save space on your actual hd.

you can use an external hard drive or usb 3. then play form this HDD. most people use that medium these days to avoid overloading the RAM and hard disk of PCs.

If you are playing simple games, doing it off USB will be fine, but if you are playing more computer intensive games, you may want an external HDD.
