My other computer finally bit the dust (hard disk failed), and instead of replacing the disk, I just replaced the entire computer, because it was a piece of crap. My friend had an old one that was better than mine, and he gave it to me for free. I installed W2K on it, and replaced my old documents and videos from a backup. The new one has a 200GB drive, and my old one was 300GB. The videos and documents used up 150GB, and most of my apps took up 37GB. (That leaves me with 11GB, for those of you that can't count. :thumbsup:) I have one program left, World of Warcraft. That plus the BC expansion takes 10GB. No problem, right?

Problem.

I lost the base install disk (oops), but still have the BC disk. I can download the base install off of the website, but that would take up 3.5GB. That leaves me with the base install, but the expansion won't fit. Without the expansion, I can't play my guy, because I have a bunch of expansion content and have gone above the lvl 60 non-expansion level cap. I got to leave the installer on the drive in case I have to reinstall, but that gives me 2.5GB of space that I need but don't have.

Is there any way to fix this short of getting a new HDD?

Sounds like your basic blivit situation. Have you thought about putting the videos on DVDs?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I don't have a DVD burner, but plan on getting one soon. Might be something to try.

How about investing a bit of money for an external hard drive? Would add memory and you could install what you need.
