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 found an English Windows 95 OSR2.5 ISO on this page, seems untouched.

Volume: WIN95_OSR25
Size: 617.938.944 bytes
SHA1: d0108f98f4d08ee7335606ce229a2febe6737004
CRC32: 55538854
date/time: 11/26/1997, 12:16:00
CDIMAGE 2.38 (08/27/97 TM)

The ISO inside "Microsoft Windows 95C (4.03.1216) (OSR2.5).rar" in BA's FTP Server is:

Volume: WIN_95C
Size: 596.140.032 bytes
SHA1: e050106b59520babb64295041e44287b0e29a17f
CRC32: dd09ce03
date/time: 08/24/1996, 18:10:43
CDIMAGE 2.47 (10/12/2000 TM), edited with ULTRAISO 8.6.5.2140

I compared both contents with CDCheck and they differ in just 7 files:

- \AUTORUN.INF (missing on WIN95_OSR25)
- \AUTORUN\ (missing on WIN95_OSR25)
- \FUNSTUFF\VIDEOS\GOODTIME.AVI (same in 95B and WIN95_OSR25, different in WIN_95C)
- \FUNSTUFF\VIDEOS\WELCOME1.AVI (same in 95B and WIN95_OSR25, different in WIN_95C)
- \FUNSTUFF\VIDEOS\WELCOME2.AVI (same in 95B and WIN95_OSR25, different in WIN_95C)
- \FUNSTUFF\VIDEOS\WELCOME3.AVI (same in 95B and WIN95_OSR25, different in WIN_95C)
- \win95\ohare.inf (missing on WIN_95C)

Do you think this is a keeper? ;)

According to file differences you mentioned, it seems our copy is slightly modified... On the other hand, there could be (and probably are) several different disc variants floating around, so it's no surprise to find such minor differences...

One interesting thing though, our copy has a date from 1996, but OSR 2.5 ("C") was released in 1997.

Notice it was also built with a cdimage version from the future (v2.47, 10/12/2000 TM). Maybe Dr. Emmett Brown had something to do with it... It seems the version I found is more reliable, or at least untouched :mrgreen:

I didn't download all the copies of Windows 95 from the BA server but the ones I downloaded are pure junk from the prospective of a collector. With a number of 95/98 ISOs timestamps are not correct or they are not even what they are claimed to be. What usually happens is that someone will offer to upload a fresh ISO and then someone else will come along and say that it is already on the BA server and we don't need it. The result is the new and perhaps better copy never gets uploaded and the collection never gets upgraded.

If you think your ISO is untouched then upload it and let's hope that it passes inspection and admin deletes the old junk copy.

Just finished uploading it to the FTP server, along with a TXT with info about both ISOs and differences found. Lets see which version prevails...
