Hi! Microsoft community forums suggested to come here. I am really upset that Microsoft has been deleting its downloads and I was unaware until I needed to download a tool that I used to use quite frequently. Microsoft has traditionally been good at keeping their downloads available for everyone but it doesn't seem to be the case anymore. They seem to be progressing at an alarming rate and this is extremely upsetting. I really would be appreciative if someone could help me source again the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator installer, one of version 1.0-1.06 and I would even donate money to retrieve it. The loss of software is heart breaking and we should be preserving this. If Microsoft does not want to host this, then they should leave it with the Internet Archive.

    Hi,

    It seems no official link to download iSCSI initiator 1.0-1.06.

    Maybe to you can open a case with MS to check if there's any internal channel to get the package.

    Link to open a case with MS:

    Thanks for your time!
    Best Regards,
