About BetaArchive

BetaArchive - Discussion and Collection of Betas and Abandonware

With over 100TB in our repository, we are quite possibly the largest repository of its kind on the web!

We invite you to join our website and forum community to share, discuss and exploit the hidden secrets from within beta and abandonware releases. Share your knowledge with the forum and ask questions if you don't have the answer. Our friendly community will be happy to discuss any aspects of betas and abandonware with you.

What sort of files does BetaArchive store in its repository?

The repository mainly contains Windows and Apple betas. These are the most popular files and are enjoyed by most of our members on the forum. We also have a games repository which has a huge selection of older and more modern game betas. We like to widen our scope a little bit too, so our repository stocks old abandonware classics from various consoles and computers from many years ago.

So I can get these files for free?!

Yes! We don't believe in charging for our repository. Not only would it be illegal to profit from such files, it is also against our philosophy to do so. We also don't believe in advertisements, however we do ask that if you find the site useful and you do download anything from the repository, that you make a donation, no matter how small, to help keep the site alive. Supplying our downloads is no easy feat as our servers do cost money to upkeep. Without donations it would be up to the site owner to fulfil those costs, which isn't viable. Being a free repository, we rely on users to keep us online! Sharing is also the only way we grow so we ask that if you have something we don't have that you share it with us. Our members are always looking for new files to try out!

How do I start downloading?

It's easy! All you need to do is sign up on the forum, follow the contribution rules (you simply have to share something you have that we don't), and then you can apply to what we call the "FTP Access" group (don't be discouraged by this, it's really very easy!). An administrator will review your application, and if your contribution(s) meet the contribution rules, you are accepted and can start downloading anything from the repository at once! Our fast FTP servers make sure you get the best possible speeds at all times of the day. So sign up, get accepted, and you will have access to thousands of files!
