making = depends on computer, but its not more then half of minute or maybe a minute. Uploading torrent it self is another half of minute.... Then seeding it is depended on connection. However what i do think is, she got this today at work and ofc first think she will do is, install and not make torrent... i would do the same :P then if i would have time, i would make a torrent or share it next day.

It should take less than a minute as it only creates links to certain parts of the main file e.g. 3.3gb will be broken down into 4mb parts (usually) but only within the torrent, not phisically.

NOTE: is there any1 that can beat SoLoR to an answer

You will end up seeding gigs and gigs just for one file (especially if its a first leak), use RS or similar and you will use only the size of the file.

Sweet. Thanks for the answers guys. I agree SoLoR, I would install it first as well, and then share it.

I'm going to guess it will be April 10th.
Simply because of the blog below that was released today. I don't think they would post that info now unless there was a reason. Otherwise people might forget about it by may.

We continue to follow the plan we have previously outlined and this post is no announcement of any news or change in plans. Since we know many people are running the Beta we want to provide a heads up regarding the behavior of the Release Candidate (RC) as it pertains to upgrades. Of course we are working hard on the RC and following the schedule we have set out for ourselves.

A big part of the beta process is making sure we get as much “real world” coverage of scenarios and experiences as possible and monitor the telemetry of those experience overall. One of the most challenging areas to engineer is the process of upgrading one release of Windows to another.

When you think about it, it is the one place where at one time we need to run a ton of code to basically “know” everything about a system before performing the upgrade. During the development of Windows 7 we routinely test hundreds of original OEM images from Windows Vista and upgrade them and then run automated tests validating the upgrade’s success. We also test thousands of applications and many thousands of devices as they too move through the upgrade process.


Many of you installed the Windows 7 beta on a PC running Vista. We received that telemetry and acted on it accordingly. We believe we’ve continued to improve the upgrade experience throughout the release. Similarly, based on our telemetry most of you did clean installations onto new drive partitions. Through this telemetry we learned about the device ecosystem and what drivers were available or missing.

We also learned about PC-specific functions that required installing a driver / application (from XP or Vista) to enable support for buttons, connectors, or other hardware components. Together we get great coverage of the setup experience.

We’ve also learned that many of you (millions) are running Windows 7 Beta full time. You’re anxious for a refresh. You’ve installed all your applications. You’ve configured and customized the system. You would love to get the RC and quickly upgrade to it from Beta.

The RC, however, is about getting breadth coverage to validate the product in real-world scenarios. As a result, we want to encourage you to revert to a Vista image and upgrade or to do a clean install, rather than upgrade the existing Beta.
We know that means reinstalling, recustomizing, reconfiguring, and so on. That is a real pain.

The reality is that upgrading from one pre-release build to another is not a scenario we want to focus on because it is not something real-world customers will experience. During development we introduce changes in the product (under the hood) that aren’t always compatible with what we call “build-to-build” upgrade.

The supported upgrade scenario is from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Before you go jump to the comment section, we want to say we are going to provide a mechanism for you to use if you absolutely require this upgrade. As an extended member of the development team and a participant in the Beta program that has helped us so much, we want to ask that you experience real-world setup and provide us real-world telemetry.

Be patient and let SoLoR get it downloaded, verified and torrent published. I would like to get it from RS or DepositFiles. Hey that NovaUP or whatever is fast and free, put the 7077 builds there.

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?
