    I chose, create media for another PC.

    I had chosen to only create x64 .iso even though I was thinking might make sense to have a copy of both.

    But apparently Win 10 downloader downloads WIM/ ESD for both?

    Can I use it to create Win 10 media? How?

    Delete it after?

    Yeah, this can happen if the app doesn't close properly.

    I kept the install.wim's so I could modify them and replace the D/L'd ones later ;)

    I've noticed this issue as well with the media creation tool.
    The folders are safe to delete any time.

    Don't they get removed by Disk Cleanup or Ccleaner ?
