    Hi, is it legal to store Windows 10 installers on my OneDrive and to distribute them among my friends and colleagues? No cracks included, just installers.. Thanks!

    The Men in Black will come to get you

    MS will probably remove them / kill your Onedrive account, thinking you are selling them, just link them to techbench

    Yea, I'm asking because I dont want to lose my account.. TechBench is not complete, it is missing Enterprise installers.. And no, I[FONT=arial, sans-serif] will not sell them, just distribute the installers among those that seek them for free.. No serial numbers, cracks, activators, KMS toolkits.. Legal or not?[/FONT]

    Already told you

    You think MS will trust your word that you are not selling them? lol

    Your choice, plenty of other places you could upload them to

    Why would anyone sell installers that can be downloaded for free ?

    No point. People can just get the free trial version off TechNet (signup with a Microsoft account) and then use Microsoft Toolkit (or some other KMS tool) to activate it.

    Or if they just want Home or Pro, you can legally get it right off Microsoft's site with no M$ account by using their Media Creation Tool from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/software-download/windows10

    (I think you can use the Toolkit on Windows 10 Pro as well)

    Why wouldn't you just point your friends to the MS download page?

    It's illegal and I am an authority on the law - I've watched every episode of "Law and Order" at least three times! Lennie Briscoe would have you in handcuffs before you could blink.

    And just to clarify, there will more than likely NEVER be Enterprise versions at Techbench. Consider it complete.
