Trying to apply old WoW updates...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So every time WoW has an update come out I save it to my hard drive knowing that if I ever have to reinstall WoW I can just download the installer and then apply all my updates.

Up until now it has worked, but I just got the most recent version of the installer off their site today and whenever I go to apply my old updates it says my game version is already 4.0.

Which I find impossible because I only downloaded like 30 megs of data, and I KNOW that isn't including everything up to 4.0.

I have like 3 gigs of patches saved, but I can't figure out how to apply them now...

Hmm... I guess I never thought about just copying the whole folder over. I just figured it wouldnt work that way.

Well now it looks like I have like 12GB worth of data to download and the 3GB of patches I have is worthless...

I think it has to do with the new streaming content downloader they came out with for Cataclysm. For some reason my game version is already registered as 4.0.6, so when I try to apply a patch that is from 3.0 to 3.2 it says "already version 4.0.6."
