    Win 10 Downloader & Media Creator: 10.2 GB folder remains. Use it befo


    Win 10 Downloader & Media Creator: 10.2 GB folder remains. Use it before deleting?

    I chose, create media for another PC.

    I had chosen to only create x64 .iso even though I was thinking might make sense to have a copy of both.

    But apparently Win 10 downloader downloads WIM/ ESD for both?

    Can I use it to create Win 10 media? How?

    Delete it after?

    C:\$Windows.~WS\Sources\Windows\x86\sources\install.wim
    C:\$Windows.~WS\Sources\Windows\x86\sources\boot.wim

    You can convert the esd file to an iso if you wish to go that way. In order to have both the 32bit/64bit iso for the Home and the Pro editions as well as having each separate iso downloaded I simply ran the tool multiple times by right clicking on the exe file itself to use the "run as administrator" option. That insured the tool would run multiple times on the occasions when first getting the 64bit and combo for Pro and later going back for the Home.

    The guide for seeing the esd file converted over to the iso format can be looked over at How to Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 install.esd File
