Yesterday I downloaded the DF torrent version 1.0.44.
I installed US version using the exe that came with the torrent. No errors.
I used the check update feature to patch. Roughly 50Mb from memory.
I log into the lobby. It runs through the validation of the data files. It then starts patching saying it has ~7GB of patching to go.
I am assuming this is not correct. Let me know If I have assumed incorrectly. A google search has revealed a couple threads where people had similar problems a few months back.
Things I have tried to resolve the issue:
extracting the sfad files directly to the data folder overwriting the existing files.
Basically I'm almost out of this months data cap and cannot afford another 7GB download
