    Exclamation copying updates over from one machine to another

    right, so I installed wow, with all three expansions.

    then it did 15GB download.it is complete.

    question is, can I somehow copy those update files over to another PC that also did the disk install with all expansions just like me, and will the updater pick up that 15GB

    Some help would be appreciated very much

    Thanks

    Just copy folder to another machine. For WoW and SWTor, you don't even need to install. And yes, it'll see that it is up-to-date.
    When running for the first time you'll be asked for your account info... that's about it.

    I copied the WoW folder from my Pc to my laptop like that, works without any hassles.
    Education is when you read the fineprint. Experience is what you get if you don't.

    agree 100%. If you are worried about settings and stuff, then simply delete the WTF folder and it will reset itself to default. The WTF folder holds stuff like the account logon name, macros and graphics settings so it can go without harming the actual game itself.

    Ok thanks okes. I thought maybe it keeps a record of what has been downloaded vs what is now in the folder and would come up with a miss match or something...
