    My computers have the update folder on them. Thought I would check wife's computer. Almost wish I hadn't. She hadn't installed any updates since February. *sigh* 92 updates to install :(

    If it is, then there's a whole lot of insiders that are gonna be re-downloading 10240. Lol. Hell, I've got an 8gig folder on my local C drive waiting to install. lol
    It could be downloading the setup files for Insiders to clean install, would be my guess.

    I feel your pain. My mom and step dads computers hadn't been updated since March of last year. I thought I was going to have to stay at their house for a week to get them updated and ready for 10.

    Reason why they hadn't updated: They took their computers to a repair shop to get them upgraded and cleaned and the shop has installed spyware to collect every bit of info they entered into them. So now being investigated as of a week ago. Valuable lesson learned about trusting your private stuff to strangers.

    Found a folder on C: called "$Windows.~BT" - I am assuming that is it, but it is only 4.12 GB, not 6.x or whatever size I should be expecting...?

    Insider Program Running Windows 10 Home x64 Build 10240

    Started another thread asking about doing a fresh install tonight when the final beast rolls out, but not sure where I will get a key as an Insider...

    Also an insider from the first. I see the $Windows folder in the root of C: on my insider machine but not yet on wife's Windows 7 machine. I expect to be busy over the next few weeks helping my neighbors with their installs. Have already had a number of questions from my golf buddies.

    Sage advice incoming: do not stay up to midnight. You will be disappointed. The download may arrive at 12:01am tonight,1:56am, Sunday at 2:54pm or next week sometime.. Just go to bed kids, lol. BUT INSIDER - still, no guarantee. You need sleep.
    Buzz killer. :)

    Checking into the party. I'm going to hold off on the update for now, until I'm sure everything is stable and good to go. I was checking out the store earlier, and it looks like some features have been rolled back. Purchase history's back but I have a load of duplicate apps in the list now.

    My Surface Pro 3 is the one I cannot WAIT to get to Windows 10. Been running an Insider build in VMWare machine for months. Waiting to really make my Surface sing.

    So I have 6.23GB sitting in the $Windows.~BT folder and there's this file called Setup.exe that's screaming for me to try and run it. 5PM here in California so, is it that the activation servers won't start processing till 12AM ET/9PM PT?
    Thoughts? Ideas?
    And yes, part of the Insider program and this isn't even on the machine I was testing! Curious on the theory that this machine will be the install source for other machines in the house.

    I feel for you, Ramzi. On the other hand, I'm in Florida and can't see myself going to the Microsoft party in New York.

    About 3GB have moved from the SoftwareDisitribution folder to the 140MB folder in the last couple of minutes and additional files have downloaded. (Estonia)
    Exactly the same with me, left for a bath and the 140MB turned into 3GB..

    Don't do it!
    Windows Reddit:
    "As another side note, if you see "~Windows ~BT." DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT RUN SETUP.EXE. THINGS MAY BE DELETED AND BAD THINGS MAY HAPPEN [sic]. ESPECIALLY don't run it after everything has been downloaded! I can't tell you how many people in the comments have done this "by accident." Don't run it. Don't run it as administrator. Just don't touch it, don't look at it, leave it well alone. (Hype train broke down. Go directly to /r/britishproblems. Do not pass Go. Do not collect 200.)"

    Changing my timezone to Japan didn't kick in the update. Guess I'll wait until midnight.

    Holding out updating my main Windows device, Surface Pro 3, but I'll try it on my spare laptop.

    I have the Windows.~BT on my desktop running 8.1 but not on my surface pro 2. I also have it on my laptop running 10240 but the date modified says 7/15 so its old, nothing downloaded today on that.
