22/08/2012 18:57does this 6 GB include the background downloader data that's already available? or is it 6 GB excluding the 6 GB some of us already downloaded via the background downloader?

The 6GB download I am referring to is the one coming from the background download :)
My WoW folder is currently 120GB big.

Wow, that is huge. That would be because of one of two reasons, either you have far too many addons or your launcher is not automatically optimizing. Make sure you run the launcher and not the client directly and if it does not optimize, delete the patching files from old updates. Also check the size of (and possibly clean out your) interface folder :)

It is a sneaky little thing and hard to notice. In the launcher next to the "play" button it will say "Downloading data for the next update". You can see its progress by clicking the "Info" drop down and choosing "Connection info".
Hope that helps, if it you need more assistance or information you can always contact our friendly support staff for more help :)
