Data patch released

Technical Support
We've released a data patch to resolve an issue where Classic World of Warcraft accounts were being disconnected in certain areas like Redridge, Swamp of Sorrows, Desolace and a few others. If you're experiencing this issue, please quit the game and start the launcher to pick up the update.
I have downloaded the full game today and was playing with no problems... Now I have to download 4,7gb of data again and can't play (still on setup mode).
Is it ok? Is the patch this big?
No. It's around 150 MB.
this patch is constantly downloading for me...but the bar never moves at all and after quite some time still nothing has occurred and the "Total Download Remaining" hasnt budged
What should I do? Wait for it to redownload the content it has already downloaded?
Thanks for the reply, anyway. :\

Yeah, I get this too.

I'm also having this issue.
I seem to be having the same issue. Didn't notice it until just now.

Another voice to the masses, I've downloaded about 2 gigs of *something*, yet my 159.5 MB left to download has yet to change. What, then, is that 2 gigs?
I read on a different thread that if you run the WoW.exe it runs with out the launcher attempting to download. I tried it and it worked, i suggest you guys try that.

ah this worked, and then saw some streaming d/l upon login. Hopefully that was the info that I couldn't grab before.
Yeah, launching it from the folder worked for me as well. Been trying all other fixes across forums for last two hrs. This worked.
Here's my TFIL:

this link doesnt load
Can someone please explain where exactly this "wow.tfil" file everyone keeps talking about is supposed to go? I've put it in my main WoW folder, I've put it in Updates, I've put it in Data and my Launcher still insists on trying to download this stupid 140MB patch, even though my husband's computer on the same network has already downloaded it.

This new patching system SUCKS for those of us limited bandwidth. Some clear instructions on resolution would be much appreciated.
I've downloaded the ~150mb patch today. I'd like to copy the patch info to another pc. My wow.tfil file is barely 1mb big and didnt produce the updates when copied to another pc. Any suggestions on where else I can look for this 150mb patch?? Nothing in my Patches/Updates/Data folder seem to match it for size.
