    If they simply hat corrected the original page browsers would still show the old copy due to caching. By creating a new page they force browsers to load it.

    So what your saying is the old page EN-US forwards or just shows the new page EN-001?

    Thanks for clearing that up gents.

    I noticed that too. The first one was of 2.59 GB and the new one is 2.8 GB
    Maybe they've added something??? I got my download interrupted due to the change in file :(

    EDIT: Just checked, it's just a typo from Microsoft. Both have same size.

    The en-us webpage was suppose to forward/show contents of the en-001 page but at first it didn't for me, may/may not be the same for you.
