Game deletes itself randomly and forces full re-download?


Recommended Posts

Twice now, I've had an issue where the game seemingly deletes itself and forces me to re-download the entirety of the game, all 50-ish(?) Gigabytes.

I've no clue as to what caused the files to delete themselves.

So approximately 13 seconds after posting this I realized that on each occasion, I had previously done a full anti-virus scan.  

Is it possible that my anti-virus confuses it as a threat and deletes it?

If that is the case, what file would I need to classify as an exception to my anti-virus?

You might have to do that.

It might also be that you are installing it in the temp folder and your virus scan cleans that out?

 

All you need to do after downloading the install file is move it into a folder for example c:/Games/Guildwars 2/

Always ALWAYS keep a backup copy of the game. Arenanet's download servers will sometimes mess up. Once I was unable to play for weeks because my game got corrupted and the D/L servers simply would not let you download the entire game.
