In a few hours, The most anticipated Windows 10 update will be officially launched.  Even though Microsoft confirmed that it might be a while before the update makes its way to everyone’s computers, Reports have it that Windows 10 has already begun pre-downloading itself onto PCs that have reserved their copy. The pre-download appears to be happening automatically with no prior warning.

Some of the users who have confirmed this are from the US, UK, Israel, among others. According to their reports, a GWX and a C:\$Windows.~BT folder have begun filling up with files related to Windows 10.  In case you don’t know, the C:\$Windows.~BT is a folder that is hidden in your PC’s root folder. To access it open Resource Monitor and under Disk category, sort by ‘Write’. There you can see ‘System’ will be on top and the file location is ‘C:Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\. If you go to that folder There will be a large file that is probably being downloaded which would be moved to C:\$Windows.~BT\.

The size hasn’t been confirmed yet, but some people are hinting at a 3GB file size while others hint at a 7GB file size. For those of you that haven’t gotten anything yet, I suggest you make sure your Windows 8.1 or 7 is up-to-date.
