Windows 10: Media Creation Tool - ISO Failure

    Media Creation Tool - ISO Failure

    I am trying to create a bootable USB/DVD through the Media Creation Tool and am failing each time. I have selected English, Windows 10 Home, 64-bit for the options and tried both the USB Flash Drive option and ISO options and have resulted in only "Something happened" immediately when it is verifying the content. I have also tried to run the Media Creation Tool as the administrator to no avail.

    Has anyone found a solution to this?

    How much disk space do you have free? The operation may need in excess of 8GB of free and plenty of contiguous space to create the ISO file successfully. A disk clean-up first, then defragmentation may be needed.

    I have 22GB on my SSD and 345GB on my 2nd drive. I tried selecting the ISO to be saved on my 2nd drive and still the same issue. I am trying on my laptop now to see if that works.

    Do you have a 3rd party antivirus running? or just Windows Defender?

    I would try disabling it and relying only on MS Defender - 360 Total Security possibly does not know about this yet!
