Lost Disks and You
My unique method of organization, which I call organized clutter, sometimes skews a little closer to the clutter part.
Case in point: my World of Warcraft install disks.
I lost them ages ago. I formatted my PC and did a clean install of Tiger, leaving both of my computers without my drug of choice. After a bit of searching, I somehow found myself holding two (2) copies of Disk 4, rather than a single copy of Disks 1-4. I still don’t quite know how that happened.
Luckily, Blizzard has anticipated such an eventuality.
You, too can lose your disks and download the 3.5 GB install package from their very own website (note: the Free Trial Client is also the full client). Because it’s the Windows installer and the Mac installer, I can use it on every computer I own! I burned it to a DVD for that specific purpose.
But what if you lost your Burning Crusade disks, too?
Don’t worry. They’ve got you covered. Now that Blizzard has begun a no-disk online upgrade option, you can download and activate a Burning Crusade upgrade if you haven’t done that yet (for shame!). If you already activated an upgrade (by purchasing it in the old fashioned way, via retail), then you can just download the expansion! Easy!
