    - StarCraft and StarCraft: BroodWar no longer require the CD while playing the

    Explorer Folder Options.

    your StarCraft folder and rename it to "StarCraft.mpq".

    Excellent, thanks for the show and tell. Clears up some space, that file is smaller than the profile I had for SC and BW
