    The folder downloaded to my computer today says date created is 7/10, so that's alright.

    If you already have 10240, it's probably just spare files or something.

    I have a surface Pro 3. I'm enlisted into the insider's program but never downloaded a preview build. I currently see the C:\$windows-BT hidden folder. About is showing me that 5.68GB, with a 'Size on Disk' as 4.16GB. My C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder has too much in it for me to discern what might be additional files. Everything in the folder appears to have names that are random strings of digits and alphas. I'm so anxious I can't do anything else. <Sigh>

    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.)"
    Sooo....am I allowed to breathe in its vicinity?

    seems like its trying to start the setup but it hasn't got the clearance from the central command (ms) to proceed. =)

    installation will most likely initiate at the same time. someone said it would start at 8 CEST.

    I'm gonna ask a question, and I don't want any hating... But, am I right in saying that the build they are releasing today is the same 240 build that the insiders got last week?
    From what I've heard so far, exactly plus the bug fixes that Insiders have gotten over the last few weeks.

    From talking with family in Europe that were using 10240 on the 'fast ring', it was just a big honking update, added features, removed watermark, etc..

    My system information says "Windows 10 Pro". I think it is not the final Windows version. I am in Argentina (10pm here)

    If you already had Windows 10 installed, you're pretty much running the RTM.

    The build that's getting pushed out to Windows 7/8.1 users is the same 10240 you have now, with the updates you were getting over the past couple of weeks.

    I'm in an almost identical situation (my folder sizes are 5.7GB & 4.17GB). I actually downloaded, and installed, an older preview build but ended up re-installing W8.1 from a USB recovery drive. I was hoping my SP3 would still be consider a 'windows insider' and get the update early.
