The community for beta and abandonware collectors.

BetaArchive is one of the webs largest Beta & Abandonware archive!

About BetaArchive

With over 100TB in our archive, we are quite possibly the largest archive of its kind on the web!

We invite you to join our website and forum community to share, discuss and exploit the hidden secrets from within beta and abandonware releases. Share your knowledge with the forum and ask questions if you don't have the answer. Our friendly community will be happy to discuss any aspects of betas and abandonware with you.

What sort of files does BetaArchive store in its archive?

The archive mainly contains Windows and Apple betas. These are the most popular files and are enjoyed by most of our members on the forum. We also have a huge abandonware archive which has a selection of both old and more modern software titles.

So I can get these files for free?!

Yes! We don't believe in charging for our archive. Not only would it be illegal to profit from such files, it is also against our philosophy to do so. We also don't believe in advertisements, however we do ask that if you find the site useful and you do download anything from the archive, that you make a donation, no matter how small, to help keep the site alive. Supplying our downloads is no easy feat as our servers do cost money to upkeep. Without donations it would be up to the site owner to fulfil those costs, which isn't viable. Being a free archive, we rely on users to keep us online! Sharing is also the only way we grow so we ask that if you have something we don't have that you share it with us. Our members are always looking for new files to try out!

How do I start downloading?

It's easy! All you need to do is sign up on the forum, follow the contribution rules (you simply have to share something you have that we don't), and then you can apply to what we call the "Archive Access" group (don't be discouraged by this, it's really very easy!). An administrator will review your application, and if your contribution(s) meet the contribution rules, you are accepted and can start downloading anything from the archive at once! So sign up, get accepted, and you will have access to thousands of files!
