Transferrred game folders from one drive to another. Now game wont run

Post#1 » Fri Jan 22, 2021 2:03 am

As the title says. I transferred the main WAR folder from one drive(F) to another(C). At 99% through the transfer I received some message with "....Win64 could not be transferred" .... I chose "Skip". There were 4 files that remained in my old WAR folder on drive F. I tried to cut and paste those files but keep getting "You do not haver permission ... blah blah blah" I click on the option to continue(has admin icon) and it still wont xfer the file!

Anyway I did a "REPAIR" twice hoping this would fill in the missing files but the game wont run. I restarted my CPU and still no dice. I get the launcher, I go to connect, I see the loading splash screen for about half a second then the game crashes on startup.

I'm assuming I need to reinstall the game. If I want to save my UI settings for all of my characters, which folders do I need to hold onto before uninstalling and reinstalling? My Addons folder would be one folder I save and I assume my entire "user" folder?

Hey,

Yes, you should save the Interface and the User folder to keep your setup alive.
