    Does anyone know what's the difference between windows 10 sources, all En-Us x64, since the ISO file size is not exactly the same. The sources i used are here:

    1. m$ media creation tool. File size is 3255232
    2. .esd file decrypted with esd-decrypter-wimlib-6.7z. File size is 3898726
    3. WZOR-leak iso. File size is 3998138

    and which one should i use?

    Thanks

    i looked deeper in the 3 iso's. all the files are the same size and date between the 3except for install.wim. in the wzor leak it has the same timestamp as the rest of the files in the iso. in the other 2 versions, the file got the timestamp of when i created the file (decrypted or downloaded/created with the tool). plus, the esd has one extra file named ws.dat, size 0 timestamp same as install.wim.
    So... whats in the install.wim? which one should i choose? which is the "original"?

    @cuteee i want en-us

    Media creation tool creates ISOs that are both retail and oem and depending on what option you chose they can also be both x32 and x64...any of that could make them different in size.

    Content and end result would be the same. The "most pure" if that's what you're looking for is probably the WZOR-leaked ISO, which is the same as would be in a package at the store.

    convert esd file to ISO give you only one edition - Home or Pro or another edition.
    WZOR ISO has 2 edition in 1 file - Home and Pro. another edition is like esd file.
    I don't know which editions give you the m$ media creation tool - ISO from esd file or like WZOR ISO (multiple editions).
