  1. Media Creation Tool and Digital License Queries


    Hi folks,

    I have THREE different Media Creation Tools - one from August 2016, one from August 2018 (labelled 1803) and one from August 2019 (labelled 1903).

    Does it matter which tool I run in order to get a backup copy of Windows 10?

    In other words, when I run the tool, will it download the latest version from Microsoft (which I believe is 1909)?

    Failing that, is there somewhere I can download 1909 from as an .iso and burn it to a USB using Rufus?

    I aske because my wife's 1 y.o. laptop has just gone south but I have no backup copy of Windows 10 in case this happens again out of warranty.

    As an aside, how does the digital license work if the laptop requires a new hard disk (the current repair should come back with a working, licensed machine from Lenovo).

    Thanks folks,

    Further to my above query,

    I found this from bleepingcomputer.com:

    How to Download the Windows 10 1909 ISO From Microsoft

    Stil have the question about the digital license though.

    The media creation tool can be used to upgrade your current PC to Windows 10 or to create a USB or DVD and install Windows 10 on a different PC.
