    i do not think it's a legit file... ... it being an .esd file and all.

    The .esd file extension is a ExpertScan survey document file

    For anyone who is downloading from 3rd party site.

    Remember, you are installing an operating system to your computer, and i don't think that you want to ruin everything, id can be rigged, or in worst cases it ruins everything.

    also, maybe the official one is a newer build than the one you're downloading.

    I just ran into another site's page for both the Customer Preview as well as DPreview and the W8 Server download that shows the CPreview x64 at 2.13gb not 2.1gb. The Cus. Preview is smaller in size by intent. I'll make a better comparison when finding an MS page with download links not some other site in order to verify the source.

    TechNet now sees the W8 Server beta link found at Technet Evaluation Center
