Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

I picked up a bundle of old CDs at a car boot, if anyone wants me to upload the images I can do. I do not know whether images of these are allowed, if not please do tell me:

MS TaxSaver 99
MS Autoroute GB 1997
MS Money 2000
SierraHome Print Artist
MS MapPoint 2000

I would like mappoint (upload to my server :D), but i'm not sure it would be allowed because of the rule that abandonware is 10-or-more years-old :(

Oh, well then we'll have to wait another 3 years then, as MapPoint will only become 'abandoned' in 2010 :P

What counts as "abandoned by the company who created it" though, as Windows 98 and Me (for example) are no longer updated but still not allowed on the server, do they not count as abandoned?

98/ME are not allowed on the server because they're not over 10 years old. That's the way I see it.
