    Force Updating

    I installed FFXI on this new PC, want to avoid going through the tediousness of updating for hours on end. If I want to copy/paste (after install), what files do I have to copy? The entirety of the FFXI folder (~9GB)?

    Copy and Paste the whole folder.

    Then, POL will run a check through all your files, but won't download anything.

    NOTE: For me because I replaced some music files, I think POL redownloaded them as it has about 5 files to download. Wasn't too sure why but yeh, it's a lot quicker that way.

    just the FINAL FANTASY XI folder? or everything?

    Updating POL takes what, 2 minutes? It's the FFXI Updates that breaks bawls.

    Thanks for the help =)

    I did everything under the C:\Program Files\PlayOnline folder, so yeh, both POL and FFXI. Why not eh? While you're there.
