    Windows 10 is being downloaded in the Background for those who have reserved a copy.

    Check for a Folder - C:/$Windows.~BT (Hidden)
    untitled.png
    If its downloading in the background it should weigh about 140MB
    &
    if its already downloaded it should weigh 6GB
    Just check for the folder and its size. if its there,
    Your System has started downloading Windows10.

    **Dont try to open any files in the folder. it should be enabled once the time comes.

    Insider and I have the folder. Currently reading 4.75gb. Did notice performance issues with my desktop yesterday evening. Perhaps it was downloading in the background as everything seems to be running fine today.

    I am also an Insider, and currently running the latest 10240, and I have the folder. Does it make sense?

    I'm in the UK using Windows 8.1 update 1 and the folder is 3.37 Gb on my main machine. On my UMPC (yes I do still have one that is still working) it is showing that my update is reserved and I have no issues to do the upgrade but I don't have the folder yet.

    Regards

    Noticed the download start to the prefetch folder yesterday around 3. I believe it is downloading to at least 3 locations and builds the files in to the update folder.

    Wait for some time once it checks that all files and programs are compatible you'll get your report and once it says go then your download will start!
