Windows 10: Where does the mediaCreationTool save the downloaded iso? Solved

    Where does the mediaCreationTool save the downloaded iso?


    Hey guys, this is my first post here. And I pretty much made an account to stress this issue that I have right now.

    Ok, so I chose to upgrade my PC through the mediaCreationTool and waited for the download to finish.
    A few minutes later it was checking for updates. Then bam.

    My PC suddenly restarted. What I want to know basically is where the mediaCreationTool saves the iso as it has already finished downloading, and if I can use that iso without mediaCreationTool's help?

    Thank you!

    Start the media creaton tool again and check the destination folder, afterwards you can burn the .iso to a disk and install from that

    But I chose to "Upgrade my PC", where does the mediaCreationTool save that download?

    I think if the download (or the verify process afterwards) fails, it won't create any file at all. You must retry.

    That's the last thing I wanted to hear =_= Are there any other methods that doesn't involve redownloading the whole thing? I won't have enough up-time if I redownload it

    Officially, none that I know of. It took me three retries to be able to fetch the proper ISOs. Annoying to say the least. Yes, I know MS servers must be quite busy.
