hey im building a pc and all i had was 6gb usb stick. I used it with the Windows Media Creation Tool and it worked without any problems, it took around 4gb space but it says 8gb while downloading so I wanted ask if its fine if download ended without any problems ?
 
Did you make this years ago?
Because the newest version of windows 10 is bigger than 6Gb.
Maybe it automatically used an older version based on the size of the usb.
It should work but expect a long download time for updates after doing the installation.

6GB USB stick? I'm not sure, if there is such a thing.

You probably have 16GB flash drive with "1" scratched off.
That's why from outside it appears as 6GB.
its a 8gb the one that they gave for promotion so there is a 1.5gb separate part for promotion that i cant format no matter what i do so i have 6.5gb space
