My bnet client also started scanning my WoW game every time I launch it (If the bnet client is freshly opened).
This is pretty annoying because it can take upwards to 10 minutes to scan. I had it do that four times yesterday!

Having the exact same problem. Submitted a ticket…we shall see.

Same deal here – it just started, although I was having issues with “Important Game Data files” downloading while i played with frequent stuttering of the game despite having home and world latency under 30. I have tried deleting the launcher and related files (including from active processes via Task Manager). I have deleted all IDX files and let them repopulate. I have run a corruption check on my hard drive. I’m still getting a message every time I run the launcher that there seems to be a problem with my game files and, it runs the “scan and repair,” and finds no problems. WoW is literally the only game or software that I’m having issues with.

Ya same exact thing for me too, takes for ever to scan and right at the end it says whoops and starts over again. Started doing this yesterday and when I played the map was bugged.

Thankfully(?), enough people have had the issue that it got this bluepost, simply confirming that they’ll work on a fix. [Main Thread] Scanning and Repairing Repeatedly After Bnet Update

hopefully they find a solution fast cause i lost about 4 to 5 hours of gaming in Verdansk!

Hey all,

There was a bug that popped up that Bliz has pushed a fix for. Have a look at this post here to see if helps.
