Sure! thats fine and dandy, if it wasnt for the fact that it insists on DOWNLOADING each time! not just checking, i can see my network packets climbing through the bloddy roof when the launcher is running. Were talking 1-4mill packets per 1-2 seconds! So, no, its not just checking the files. Bunch of bull****!

your not losing the disk space this is patching and adding some files to the main directory your not really losing space if it fails unless the space is now hidden which is unlikely to happen from the patching when it goes to overright it will overright the spaces being said as used , you really need to post some pictures of disk space being lost rather then saying its been lost so if that is the case they can attempt to fix the issue im so tired of all our it pros out there thinking its as simple as pushing a button its designed to work on a wide amount of systems its not been said yea it works 100% on any system ever made thats the sad fact about how pcs are it will never be so stop harassing game makers over something that is atm impossible to be done they may actually regain the want to make you something ik if you harassed me i wouldnt make a thing id quit making games and work other things

Well done Cryptic/PW... well done gents! I am now very amused. Adding my last half hour's highlights in to the pot for your benefit, formatted in point form:

* Patched, logged-in to character selection and... client crashes.

* The 'client crash report' crashes... oh sweet irony.

* Decline verify client game data. Regardless, 4GB of data requires re-downloading.

* Forcing file verification does not work.

* Symbolically linking the game folder to my SSD fails to finish.

* Undo the previous step and restart the PC. Game client now wants to download 14GB?!

* Steam's verify game data wishes to download 4GB of files.

* Uninstall STO.

* Raise my virtual middle finger at all those responsible.
