Written by | Categories: Computers - Tips & Tricks - Computers - Windows 10

Do you know that ESD files are highly compressed and encrypted and can be used as ISO files?

Some users download their latest builds as ESDs and convert them to ISO to save time.

ESD files are usually downloaded using the Electronic Software Download application, each upgrade comes in the form of ESD files that are later uncompressed and installed. Microsoft is using the ESD format because it offers compression and more security.

You can download the latest Windows 10 builds in this forum, and use this tutorial to convert them to ISO and use them as you use your normal ISO.

The Windows Update builds ESD files are usually stored in the %localappdata%\Microsoft folder under the \websetup\Download\ subfolder.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to convert ESD files to ISO using Dism++ which is a free open-source tool I let you discover its capabilities.

Let’s go!

The official repo of Dism++ is in GitHub, you can download the Exe file from the official website: http://www.chuyu.me/en/index.html

After downloading, unzip the files and double-click on “Dism++x64.exe“.
