Last week before the weekend's update, I was playing the game. Yesterday, after the download and install message, it all stopped at the attached page.

The WoW program has permission to access the HDD, other firewalls have been on hold for the update, to no avail.

'during data repacking, the program is unable to access the HDD... change the format for storing the game data'

 

Please help, this is the 2nd time I had installed the WoW program; making sure I did follow all what I know.

 

Thank you

Make sure your HDD has DOUBLE the amount of space required for the files. (about 50GB free)

 

This patch unpacks and then repackages everything, needing space to move the files around in.

Sharing the solution:

 

Antivirus/FIREWALL

ThreatFire

-allows WoW to run and install, after run as ADMIN

-but, does not allow the uninstall/delete

-ThreatFire assumes that WoW is only allowed to install, when WoW is deleting; it does not allow, assuming it is out of the parameter. 

 

I removed/deleted ThreatFire, which is free and a good software. Would like to install it again, a challenge to you guys

 

Thank you
