WINDOWS 7 BETA expiration date

WINDOWS 7 BETA expiration date

Microsoft has been sending an email to Windows 7 Beta users that Windows 7 Beta will expire on August 1, 2009. From June 1, 2009, the PC you’re using to test the Beta will begin shutting down every two hours.

The Bi-hourly shutdown starting date extended to JULY 1st 2009. Actually at the time of releasing Windows 7 Beta public build, Microsoft announced that it'll start automatic shutting down every 2 hours from July 1, 2009.

Today Microsoft clarified this confusion and accepted their fault:

Over the weekend, some of you may have received an email from us reminding you that the Windows 7 Beta expires on August 1st, 2009. In that email, we ask that if you are still on the Windows 7 Beta that you should consider moving to a “non-expired” copy of Windows such as the Windows 7 RC or Windows Vista because bi-hourly shutdowns will begin June 1st.

The Windows 7 Beta does expire on August 1st, 2009; unfortunately the date for when bi-hourly shutdowns will begin for the Windows 7 Beta was incorrect however.

Bi-hourly shutdowns for the Windows 7 Beta will begin July 1st, 2009.

We apologize for the confusion and inconvenience this may have caused.

Hurray finally there is 1 more month time for you to back up your data before you start using windows 7 RC or other OS.
