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've found this in a box of old CDs I had lying around.

It's an OEM disc, as evidenced by the text on the right ("Sale can only be combined with the purchase of a PC"), but it works perfectly fine nevertheless.

Here are some screenshots:

Thank you for your upload, but I won't add this to the archive until you provide a proper disc dump.

I've read a post you made saying iso files were fine as long as the disc was single track, which the Works 8 disc is.
Anyway, I'm making a new backup now

That doesn't mean that I would accept them as originals etc, only in special cases where you absolutely can't make MDFs. All dumps from original discs must be done according to the guidelines unless absolutely impossible.

Thank you, will review it when it's uploaded.

It was lacking the log files that are mentioned in the guide, but otherwise it's all good.

I'm really sorry, I missed the info about the log files from the guide.
I'll provide them really quickly
