After discovering issues with the size of the download, however, we have deactivated it for the time being. We'll let you know once when we're ready to start the 6.0.2 background downloader again, as well as provide you with some additional details on how it works and what you can expect when downloading the 6.0.2 patch in advance of its release on live realms.
You put it up without checking the file size?

09/22/2014 06:50 PMPosted by YøjimbøZarhym! Give us a date? Is 6.0.2 tomorrow or next week???

For those who had already downloaded the pre-patch, will that pre-patch information conflict with the upcoming pre-patch files?

It's likely that the manifest lost the encoding specifiers somewhere along the way, or the cording is downloading locales incorrectly. But that's neither here nor there. We're looking into the issue to get it fixed as soon as possible.
I'm...not sure if this is all made up jargon or real.

And what's the opinion on cleaning out data that has already been downloaded, as per Omegal's recommendation in the post just above yours?

So you say, skull-man. So you say.
You could have dropped any sort of gobbledygook in there and would've made as much sense. Flux capacitors and whirleygigs and don't forget the samophlange.

Our software engineers don't recommend players try to do this. The reason we've stopped the downloader relates to a matter of efficiency of the migration process. There isn't really any point in undoing what has been done if you've already downloaded data, as it's data you'll eventually need whether you got it today, or will get it when the downloader is reactivated.
Um.. Hate to bring this up, but it does kinda matter when you have Live installed on a small SSD.. ;)
Personally would rather go through the file conversion and have it wipe the old files as it goes along so that I don't run out of space on the drive..
