    You can create a second partition on the flash drive. You can also shrink the 32 GB partition the Media Creation Tool makes down to something like 6 to 8 GB and create an even larger second partition on the flash drive.
    Tried all that but the drive was stuck at 32GB, had to use GPARTED to wipe and set back to 64GB FAT32. It's still in use after 4 years for data portability.

    Media Creation Tool (MCT) has now been updated.

    The USB created by MCT will now install Windows 10 version 2004 build 19041.388

    I bought Windows 10 pro through Microsoft and have it installed. Several months ago I followed your tutorial to make a backup on a UBS drive so it will install the latest version at that time. I don't know if I got this email because I am still subscribed to the thread. I don't remember what version it was I copied to the USB drive following your tutorial, I want to say it was after the may update or creation update.

    It says it has been updated on your tutorial and nor this is my version,

    Should I follow your tutorial again to make sure I have the most recent one? if so could you please send me a link to backup my Windows 10 pro to a USB so if I have to install from a clean install I ahve the most recent version.

    Thanks

    Hey mate,

    This is just for the Windows 10 build the ISO or USB will install if you download the ISO or create the USB with MCT.

    Thanks as always for your tutorials.
    Since I created a bootable USB prior I plan to format the same UBS drive and use it for this updated version. I read somewhere in the threads that the USb should be formatted to FAT32 is that correct> if not which format should I make the USB drive

    No need to do anything other than let MCT create the USB for you.

    As Brink says, just let the MCT process do its thing. It will wipe the drive clean then format as FAT32 as part of the process. FAT32 does have a limit of 32GB.

    Thanks guys, I got my USB done with the latest version.

    It did take me 2 times because I misunderstood one step.

    In the tutorial it says in step 6,
    6
    Uncheck the Use the recommended options for this PC box. (see screenshot below)

    Leaving the Use the recommended options for this PC box checked will have the Media Creation Tool create a USB flash drive that's the same language, edition, and architecture as the current PC.
    Even though it clearly states to Uncheck the Use the recommended options for this PC box. (see screenshot below)

    After reading the second part I asked myself why wouldn't I want it the same as this PC??? Then I thought about ti and I'm sure you uncheck it in case you ever have a different PC you need to install windows 10 on. Somethings I over think things.......lol

    I also realized that the last USB I made was wrong it was a ISO, this one is correct!!!

    Shawn you rock! and thanks for the confirmation Berton !!
