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).

All of them are already here.
Gees, every new guy/girl (do not take offence that I am saying this) offers the same that is available everywhere.

And Chicago 177 does NOT exist, it's wrong labeled 117.

EDIT:
Also another offering that is the same.
I suggest you search first before posting.

@Rob: Chicago 177 is a mislabeled 189 and 117 is most likely 122 (at least all i've seen)

Why not go to my site, all builds that are leaked are on there, and are here on the servers :wink:
Updated to the yesterday's leak.

It depends what's on it, and specifically what upload speed you have (the download speed of the connected clients).

But I think most of us here get their beta's from the official server and several dedicated servers.

But you can do it if you want, nobody is stopping you.

you may get server access before you open your server.

Mirroring the private servers to make them public is not allowed. There is a reason we make them private, and thats to stop new people leeching from them and the forum becoming inactive.

But how can he get them off the private server to mirror them if he has no access to it? Whilst I understand the reasons behind making the BA server private, surely having other people providing servers does nothing, if a user wants to leech they will not turn into a productive member in my opinion anyway.

Yes, but he currently has no access to the server, therefore mirroring it is impossible, as he has no ability to download from it (unless of course the unlikely event of password leakage applies here), so he must therefore have obtained the builds himself and put them up for download.

Bandwidth load gets taken off of the BA server, Members who would probably not contribute anything regardless, or stop contributing once they get AM access still get some downloads, and this guy can still make his contribution

Although I know why Andy makes his own server AM only, I really can't see what is overly wrong with what this guy is doing. Just my opinion, don't shoot me for it.

oh yes, he obtained the builds himself and offered them to the betarchive server (though they are already there)

i think he was just saying in the future he would offer his server as a mirror to the current one :p. (hope im right but with my luck im probably not lol :P)

I don't think he is offering to mirror the entire server, just those particular beta builds, on his own hosting.
