    install.wim is a compressed file
    install.esd is a solid and highly compressed file

    like everyone explained above, ESD is a highly compressed and encrypted format used by microsoft to transfer ISO images and such. my guess they only started using ESD when windows 8 got released or when 8.1 came out.

    The meaning of the acronym ESD in file extension is 'Expertscan Survey Document' which is different from Electronic Data Sheet(ESD) used by network configuration tool,etc. It is a secured and highly compressed file system as many people has mentioned. Whenever you come across such file extension you are quite sure it is not only Microsoft that makes use of it.
