Microsoft has started pushing Windows 10 out to PCs in preparation of its July 29th launch today. Those who reserved their free upgrade began to pre-download the bits yesterday, and many in the United States and other areas have already received the pre-download.
Some eagle eye’d users have found that the GWX folder is filling up with Windows 10 bits, and many already have the .ESD which contains the entire Windows 10 operating system for installation starting today, July 29th. It was revealed a couple of months ago that Windows 10 would automatically be pre-downloaded before the launch date to avoid day one server struggles.
The pre-download appears to be happening automatically with no prior warning, so don’t worry if you’ve not noticed anything different yet.
