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).

Are the files in those folders directly in iso format? If they are, I would have Build 4093! :)

If you didnt read the posts after youre posts that you made about .iso and .rar

The files on server are packed .rar (rule) and after unpacking its an .iso.

And by the look of it, they arent .iso on SaT image, but also an archive wich contains an .iso.[/b]

Sorry, but why is it a rule that the iso files need to be contained in RAR files? They don't seem to save much space; they still seem to take up many 100 MB or even GB!

They save about 50MB each, and when you have a few hundred files, thats a lot. Also the server got a virus earlier in the year because I accidentally executed an exe file that had a virus in it, which is why now all files, including exe, must be rared before uploading. They must also be named in a suitable fashion or I'll do what I do with all non-properly named files and delete them, NO EXCEPTIONS, whether it took you days to upload or not. Its a simple rule to follow.

RARs don't specifically make them immune to viruses though, there are viruses which will infect RAR files. A better solution would be to run some kind of antivirus on the server that monitors the incoming folder and deletes anything which is a virus.

Going back on topic, SaT, it looks like most of those are already on the FTPs here? Unless I'm missing something?

There is already active virus scanning but it can't stop everything. Its rare to find a rar file thats actually infected, but rather the content inside instead.

like:

Microsoft Windows Vista ™
October Community Technology Preview Release
Build 5231

and

Microsoft Windows Vista ™
November Community Technology Preview Release
Build 5259

I read in a computer magazine 3 years ago that RAR is a better compression format than ZIP, is that why you use RAR instead of ZIP?

Double post above, but you just clicked twice (can happen).

Compression (best above that i have expierenced)

.7z
.rar







.zip

.zip doesnt compressed all, but just a bit.

Thanks hounsell, and sorry, I was in a rush and did accidentally click twice. Isn't 7z the format that Linux can natively read? Please correct me if I am wrong.

(Back on topic)

I noticed when browsing the BA server there was Windows 7 and somebody had forgot to put it in a RAR file. Don't know if somebody has now, but just thought I would say. Then again, the file is huge! Nearly 3GB! How long approximately would it take to put a 1 to 3GB iso file into a RAR file compared to the time it takes to put a 500MB file into a RAR file?

You can download 7-Zip for Windows.

And 7z can read more archives then only the ones that .rar and .zip offer.

Yes, I have both 7z and a full version of WinRAR, thankyou. But what I was wondering before this topic gets closed: what file format compression does Linux natively support if any?

He's missing build 3790 and 5060, assuming one of these are leaked.

Anyway, SaT, you let me down... When I saw the name of this topic, I thought you had build 3663 or 5000(yes there is a Longhorn 5000 build)...

Because you put it in a RAR file doesn't mean it becomes smaller. Since Vista/Windows 2008/7/variants uses the WIM format it means that it is already compressed. Doing a max RAR compression could take 30 minutes to 1-2 hours and perhaps save you 20-30MB. And that's not much saving for such a large file.

But I agree, 3GB files are too large. I am still working on the new FTP layout (sorry for the long delay, it's a lot of files and there are too few hours in a day cycle) which will have split files, correct filenames, maximum compression (RAR) and folder layout to better sort out what's what.

Until then get a good FTP client that supports resuming and hope you get the files properly :P.
