    Just checking before I download the Media Creation Tool from the MS website...

    Does anyone know which version of the Windows 10 x64 Home ISO will download? I've been away for a little while and the last thing I knew was when Microsoft pulled the 1511 ISO.. and reinstated the older version.

    Is that still the situation?

    Hmm just downloaded both ISO's

    The one from the media creation tool is 800mb smaller than the ISO downloaded from techbench?

    Why the difference?

    Media creation tool downloads install.esd while techbench download has install.wim. install.esd is highly compressed.
