Windows 10 media ceation tool - "Something happened?'
You have to ask how much bandwidth has Microsoft paid for and wasted, over the years, because of Clunky Windows Update.
Microsoft has so much recent history at being bad at this. The Win10 media creation tool. Let's hope the group that wrote the Win10 media creation tool were never involved in the differential update, Windows Update release.
When Windows 10 was first released, rather than give users (on Windows*) a straightforward ISO to download through the browser, MS forced the use of a special tool instead - the Windows 10 media creation tool 'heap of shit utility' software to create an ISO/USB Install of Windows 10.
*oddly Linux/Mac users were offered simply, the US version (but not UK version) ISO directly, instead of using the tool, via the tool's webpage, Linux Mint has a tool built-in to write such ISOs to USB.
Whoever wrote the Win10 media creation tool hadn't a clue about rationing/reusing the amount of download bandwidth used/amount of disk space used.
This tool seemed to have been a last minute add-on for Windows 10, but crucially, formed the front and centre, of the whole experience of installing Windows 10. It was a complete unmitigated disaster. It was plainly, never tested.
Microsoft never thought/designed this software with SSDs in mind, i.e. limited disk space PCs.
The largest file - 32/64Bit (Both Image) was around 6GB
The tool failed to check disk space.
Tbe tool failed to ask where to store the files, stored everthing on the C: Drive.
If the download link broke, there was no resume feature.
It expanded the compressed download format of 6GB, into another file of 6GB, again, no choice to save to a different location other than the C: drive.
So for this tool to work, the machine needed around 20GB of space free, more than most Windows 7 Users running SSDs, and crucially with no warning before software was run.
The media creation tool would just fail, mostly after downloading the first 6GB, (at 99% or part of) as it was expanding the file into the second 6GB ISO file with the meme/cryptic message 'Something Happened'.
