I recently bought Battlefield 3 and installed it but had to wait for it to download a monstrous 4.5Gb patch that took 32 hours to download and used up half my cap. If I went to the Programs folder and copied the game folder onto an external hard drive and then formatted and installed the 64-bit W7 version and then copied that BF3 folder back across would the game work? I am extremely reluctant to have to re-download that humongous patch again! The reason I want to switch to 64-bit is so I can install more RAM.
Thanks in advance!

did you save the patch in the downloads folder on the hard drive?
short answer is no, you have to re-install from scratch.
