The MSDN discs containing Beta OS is not listed in Beta OS folder, that makes discs are hard to navigate in FTP.
Could you please create text files to direct users to correct MSDN compilation folder for downloading?

They are not listed there because they are not retail or OEM stuff, but part of a subscription set. That's why they are in the compilation folder.

And I won't create a bunch of text files everywhere referring them to other folders of the FTP, then we'll end up with text files everywhere and basically every beta and abandonware section will need them, as well as every compilation folder...

There is a reason why we have the compilation folders as those sets have never been part of any retail titles, and they are also just that - compilations that are kept together as they were distributed originally.

Any individual retail/OEM stuff ends up in the beta/abw folders, any sets such as MSDN, Technet, Apple ADC, MS Licensing etc ends up in the compilation set folders.

There's no other way to do that other than to code a fully searchable database, something we want to do but had no time to code.
