        Microsoft recently deleted all of the old Office 2010, Windows 7 and Windows 8 blogs – along with dozens of additional oldies but goodies. (OK, I have

        Thanks to both COYOTE and Woody’s Lounge for this gold mine of information needed to keep our systems running. As I plan to continue using Windows 7 and Office 2010 (until I die), I just chose to “DOWNLOAD ALL”. The disk cost is less than 360 MB so well worth it. As a general rule, I always download something I see that is or could be useful to me or someone I know, because there’s no guarantee it will be there tomorrow. I have over 16 TB of downloads. Streaming is for hipsters, I’m old school, give me a download so I can look at it when I want to, not when corporate wants me to.

        UPDATE

        The “DOWNLOAD ALL” option only downloads the MSFT zipped file. The other 25 folders must be individually downloaded at a disk cost of 2 GB.

        On OneDrive, of all things.

        Google Drive?

          Heh heh heh.

          Looks like Microsoft has relented, and will post the archives – at some point, somewhere.

          I’d be tempted to host them here, too, if they’re too hard to find. There’s a lot of good stuff in there.

            Best way for now to store stuff like that is the Internet archive @ archive.org (you can upload files to be stored, there)

            I’m probably missing the joke, but I think @b was pointing out that the topic says they are stored on OneDrive but the link is actually for Google Drive.

        That’s not even the tip of the iceberg… and thousands of blogs got wiped.

          A big THANK YOU from the, oh, 500 million people who are still using Win7.

        Microsoft re-activated thousands of MSDN and TechNet blogs.

        Thank you for your patience, we have now re-activated thousands of MSDN and TechNet blogs while we continue to work on the longer-term blog archive.
