I tried to get it but my drive runs out of space rapidly. Usually my system takes only about 22GB of space. This version downloads so many files that I am running out of space (close to 30GB and it asks for 10GB more). That has never happened before. In general I only need about 16GB to get a new version installed...

After your post, I did a quick look around on my system and I noticed that my Windows.old folder post install, was over 53 gigs in size.
This seems somewhere in the neighborhood of three times what it usually is. Whenever I've paid any attention it the past it seems like it was always around 15 to 17 gigs.
I'll admit that I don't always check. IF it hadn't been for your post I probably would never have even noticed.

Well, I did not have that folder as I usually clean up system files after a new install (have the old one as an Image anyway).
I went berserk today and deleted the whole partition of my DEV channel and reinstalled it from the newly released ISO and now it has a size of about 20GB again.....
The massive files download was actually in the folder " C:\Windows\Software Distribution\Downloads ".
I think something had screwed up the update thingamajob....:D:D

one more thing: After installing my computer is running like molasses. I have a suspicion that this pc will not get farther than the 2009...
the 20197 was running fine, the 20201 is like molasses.
