Normal Microsoft sourced builds won't come in .RAR files in the first place.
The "normal" way of installing an OS is via an .ISO file.

Mind you for some it's OK as a set of .RAR files as you can discover it's fake before you've wasted time on downloading 2.5 - 4GB.

Just hold your horses a little bit -- once there are some "official" or "decent" leaks out there news will quickly spread.

Incidentally I wouldn't waste my time by downloading a Windows build as a set of .RAR files either -- if you are using a torrent with a decent download speed just let it run and do something else whilst its downloading. If people have to "sneak out" the build in small pieces you are more likely to get a corrupt build than by using a proper compiled ISO.

On the small nova you can report fake torrents and they get removed pretty quickly. I'm not sure what the policy is on "The Nautical site".

Cheers

That has other good info in it too, like how to bypass the version check for upgrade from pre-RC for those that need to or really want to. Normal RC upgrade install will not allow.

Actually all my builds have arrived as .rar files. Its the standard way of posting on Usenet. They then of course unrar to a .iso.

I have downloaded every build i have used since 65xx as a set of rar files, not everybody has an amazing net speed and uploading and downloading this way is much better on a slow connection.. They are only split rar archives with the iso inside...

Torrents suck IMO, much preffer direct/ftp links.

Takes me about 15mins to get a full ISO from Giganews and if you get them in order you can more or less see whats in the finished file before wasting all that time LOL.

RC-Escrow?
I know what the RC stands for, but what has me befuddled is Escrow. Its not a term I've really heard, however from what I understand the RC-Escrow build/s is/are the one/s given out under a contract to Microsoft partners etc. is that correct?
