    I just found mine, Simrick, right where we've been telling him it is. And this is an upgrade/update. I'm not fast enough to grab it thru the "preparing to install" bit.

    I ( think ) I just found mine or an earlier one in the C drive directory tree recovery image folder but it's for an earlier test build 10061 I'm on 10547 here are the file notes below what did I find here ?

    FWIW IIRC that may have been my last clean install of a test build from an ISO although I had earlier test builds prior to that train wreck ☻.

    Upgrade will not replace the on-disk recovery image if this file is present. Do not delete or modify this file.

    I haven't had an ESD file remain on my computer since an April upgrade - that was the last one, and it's still there. Nothing since then has been left on my computer - they have all disappeared once I upgraded. I've grabbed every one of them using Kari's tutorial.

    Thanks ... OK cool ! That explains why my C: Recovery > C:\$WINDOWS.~BT folder still present in 10547 only has an earlier test build no. 10061 dated April 2015 in there .

    Can the contents of the old recovery folder be deleted safely or no? I'm assuming yes if windows allows it ?

    So how does the recovery or clean install work within the test builds ( or do they ?) if so what do they use for an image where as opposed to RTM >
    C:\$WINDOWS.~BT folder (3.65GB ) in my other NTFS partition that looks to have the recently installed RTM in place upgrade OS image and a separtate ESD 3.11 GB folder as well .

    It doesn't looks like there is a logic in there. On both 10532 & 10547 I always had install.esd in C:\$WINDOWS.~BT but until next build taking over.

    Again Yea my test build 10547 C: Windows > recovery folder >install ESD file is 3.25GB and is dated 3/19/15 it apparantly has an earlier test build in it .

    Here are the notes in the folder :

    Upgrade will not replace the on-disk recovery image if this file is present. Do not delete or modify this file.


    Build ID: 10061.0.amd64fre.fbl_impressive.150410-2039
    OTOH in 10547 the C:\$WINDOWS.~BT filder does not have the OS image in it any more since the upgrade was installed
    whereas the RTM build on my other NTFS partition does along with a separtate 3.1 GB ESD file folder .

    Bluto, I think you should forget the Recovery folder.

    right....... there is nothing current in there . I'm thinking of deleting the files in it .

    FWIW I'm downloading a Win 10 x64 home .ISO just to burn to a DVD and have ....... in case the in place RTM upgrade on my other partitian gets hosed. I have Win a 10x64 pro RTM DVD for the othert two boxes .

    No curent test build ISO's though I wouldent mind one of those either or an ESD I can convert to make a DVD .
    I'll maybe have to copy the next Insider build download before I install it or no ?
