Since Redstone 1 was release last year, the Media Creation Tool always had the Version# 14393.0 which
resulted in the installed Version of Windows 10 built 14393.0.

This has now changed as the approach of the creators update is near.

The new Media Creation Tool carries the Version# 14393.591 which results in the installed Version of
Windows 10 built 14393.447 (which makes it the version as of November 8th,2016 - KB3200970).

Of course the latest Cumulative update has to be installed to get it up-to-date (including the Flash Player update and the Servicing Stack Update).

Note:
If you want to create an All-in-one installation medium (which includes the Home and Pro as well as the 32bit and the 64bit version) on a USB Flash drive, make sure you use a 16GB drive as a 8GB is not sufficient....
However a DL-DVD will suffice....

Thanks Grizzly My version is 1607 OS build 1493.693. I do have the November 8th,2016 - KB3200970). Win 10 Pro. Is it still worth me downloading the latest Windows 10 MCT
Do you have a link to the download? There are many download site out there, in fact one site came up as unsafe. I don't see any reference at ms.com re-latest media creation tool Version# 14393.591

Note : MS software-download - techbench is currently unavailable.

I got it from here:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

click on [Download Tool Now]

However, IMHO it is not worth downloading as the previous version 14393.0 takes less space, even with the latest updates in the medium , the original is far less space hungry than this one.
I usually put the latest updates on the installation medium as well, so I do not have to download it over and over.
The older version 14393.0 including recent updates uses currently only 8,057,692 KB while the new one is much larger in size, right at 9,991,172KB. This is almost 2GB more.
I am gonna use the original Version for a new install, as I have to download the most recent Cumulative update anyway.
Dunno what they have changed that it became so bulky..........

Fortunately I saved the previous MCT 14393.0....

Bit lost.
The Media Creation tool is only about 17mbs.
It is, as said, a tool which then downloads the full installation material. Could well be that, since the last, a few more bits and pieces have been added,
I am tempted to try it, merely to see what is, this time, included in the "Sources"folder

I can save you the trouble. The biggest change IS in the "sources" folder as it grew over 1GB. In there the file with the biggest change in size is the "install.esd" which grew from 3,087,378,162 bytes to 4,188,787,034 bytes for the 64bit version and from 2,477,925,390 bytes to 3,323,712,930 bytes for the 32bit version. That is where the biggest change is.All other files in the sources folder have only minor changes in size (what one would expect anyway).
I assume that this is contributed to the cumulative updates that are now included up to November 2016 but that is just a guess....

Grizzly Thanks for the update.
I visited https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 but there was no indication as to which version the download was, so I didn't bother.
Based on the above posts I think I'll just keep the previous version 14393.0
It never is. Never has been with the 1511 as well. They had three different MCT's resulting in three different Installation versions but never showed a Version#. Only after one installs it the Version# comes to life. I am gonna stick with the original version 14393.0 as well. I was just curious....
