    It's perfect for a file server. For archiving purposes, svf patches and compressed sources will take up about half the room.

    I have uploaded the file 2 x times.

    the checksum result is:
    CRC32: 083BE473
    MD5: 5D1D9AAEE64DF1A0FE8F7DB84D28947F
    SHA-1: 36D560AE957DCB1239FC1501B42F25F1FB229ACC

    is this correct?

    I have download the file 3 x times.
    I have download with JDownloader, Firefox and Chrome.

    The checksum is always the same:
    CRC32: 083BE473
    MD5: 5D1D9AAEE64DF1A0FE8F7DB84D28947F
    SHA-1: 36D560AE957DCB1239FC1501B42F25F1FB229ACC

    Filename: windows 8.1 update3.vhd
    Filesize: 26,6 GB (28.664.131.584 Bytes)

    Is the upload ok? can you check this, please?

    I got a completely different one:
    CRC32: 30C0F49A
    MD5: 874ec0a3497373523423cc2253159372
    SHA1: 6dda047f76c3aa1c19b16bc426259e3a74c7408e


    Also, when I mount it, I can't access the files due to permissions. Weird... Using Windows 8.1.

    EDIT: Just read that I need to enable dedup feature. Done, thanks!

    EDIT2: Just realized that the very act of mounting the VHD can change the hash. Redownloaded and found the same checksums as Alois above.

    Fortunately, yes... So, I see the combined hash as non-issue, actually...

    Well, I would say, you can just replace the SHA1 listed with the one provided by Alois and me (seems to be the accurate one given that we have verified it independently), and give a disclaimer that accessing the VHD files will potentially change the hash.

    The contents are actually fine. I have copied out some of the ISOs and they are all checked out with the official MSDN page. Thanks!
