    Maybe there is some variation in the compression % rates from one server to another or maybe they add running update code ? :shrug:

    Not to my knowledge. The ISO from MS should be the same regardless of the server. Check it out if you like. Get the media creation tool and download 64bity pro to compare.

    Also you can get it from MS TechBench:

    Admittedly retirement can be boring now and then, OTOH I really don't care how big Windows 10 downloads are as long as my downloads behave

    FWIW I've seen different file size at multiple language /region MSDN download links on one of the web pages and the downloads outside of the MCT with multiple language packs are /were sometimes bigger than ones without those .

    One time I picked out an 3.10GB download over a smaller one maybe 2 . something or 2.85 GB IIRC on an Insider build ISO like that.

    I just downloaded 64 bit pro MCT upgrade yesterday and did a Win 7 x64 licenced upgrade/clean install option yesterday on the work station but now that it has been done .... I cant look at the $WINDOWS ~BT Folder and get the MCT download size you have to do that before you launch the set up files on a download option or maybe before the update download starts . OTOH I may download an ISO from the MCT just to have at some point I'll see how big it is then .

    Just ran diskclean in my licnced 10265.3 pro volume on this PC that was upgraded via MCT ( upgrade now ) recently .

    FWIW there was nothing much in the $WINDOWS~ BT file maybe 1.5 GB and 3.06 GB in an ESD file and whatever the Windows delivery optomization files were outside of that and ofc. much more than that in the Windows OLD file maybe ~ 25 GB .

    Correct. MCT is more compressed than Tech Bench (about 600MB smaller for x64 en-US).

    The contents are the same, both will install Windows but the MCT version doesn't work for some other more obscure uses.

    You can't use the .wim from MCT in Windows System Image Manager if you are sysprepping for example and dism with /source option also requires the Tech bench version.
