Here’s the magnet link, recovered from a previous revision of this page:

Thank you, uyjulian, for keeping this torrent alive all these years.

I'm glad you found it useful. I'm still keeping the torrent alive, so if mega.nz gets shut down, I still have two local copies (one on my torrent/hot drive and the other on my cold drive).
I'll upload it to the Internet Archive and the internal server eventually.
I also have copies of the Developer CDs. It would be nice to have all this content searchable.

This is one of the juiciest downloads of the garden! As stated in other comments, the mirrors of that FTP link found in archive.org and, I think, also in macintoshrepository are missing what THIS isn't! (They complement each other, so get both.)

I'm here particularly for the extra MRJ downloads Apple provided, but there's a ton of other useful or interesting programs and files there! Mac OS 9 lives!

I really thought this piece of software history was gone. So glad to be wrong.

No, it's the same contents as the torrent I'm still currently seeding.

@uyjulian: The DL above listed at Mega; Is it the same as this file at The Internet Archive? This is the link you put up briefly, before you replaced it with the Mega link above.

If it is the same, then its not a mirror of ftp.apple.com - that one at the Internet Archive is a mirror of developer.apple.com - a more recent web copy from around the time of OS X Leopard and it doesn't have MPW & SDKs etc for OS 9 and earlier.

I can't check Mega download links, so I would like to know what it contains, thanks.

You can still use the info hash to download.

outdated as the link doesn't work anymore...

Thanks, MacTouch. We'll keep the page here for now, as some of the comments below carry alternative possibilities.

This page looks like useless or outdated as the link doesn't work anymore... Sad

-->archive.org's FTP Site Boneyard<---

The whole thing is already there...See the link in MikeTomTom's comment below. However, the direct link to the webpage you gave is much, much better than a big tar file.

Wow, thank you very much.

It looks as if it's mirrored here:

http://staticky.com/dl/ftp.apple.com/

The entire thing can be downloaded using HTTrack or something similar, made into a TAR or ISO image, and uploaded here, or archive.org's FTP Site Boneyard, for preservation. The upload limit here seems to be 8 GB now, which is large enough to accommodate this collection.

Is there any possibility of someone seeding this?

uyjulian's picture

Fixed.
Also, I was thinking if it is possible to upload the archive here and use a web seed.

The torrent link no longer exists. Is there an alternative?

  Any hopes on internal upload?

Not if its remotely close in file size, to the 34.3 GB file Balrog's link points to Wink

To browse that archive's content, click the "contents" link next to the 34.3 GB DL on this page.

The Internet Archive is likely to be around for some time thankfully.

Very long liist, takes a while to load.
And this archive only has the ftp file.

https://ia601600.us.archive.org/tarview.php?tar=/6/items/ftpsites_mirror... contains it as well.
