        After I created my ISO for Win 10 1903 with the use of MediaCreationTool and  then burned it to a DVD, I noticed these 2 files, products.xml & products.cab. Do I need to copy these files on that DVD with the ISO or what do I do with them. Can they be deleted from the downloads or will mess something up. I apologize if my question seems like a rather dumb question but I been searching on the internet for the answer but seem to find an answer. I try to keep my download file cleaned up so not to take up valuable space on my laptop. I never had to use MediaCreationTool before and I don’t want to cause myself problems by doing something stupid. If you could please help me so I can understand what these files are and what they are for I would greatly appreciate it. Also, can I go ahead and delete the MediaCreationTool1903.exe and not mess up my ISO file for version 1903 should I happen to need it down the line.

        Thank you

        Those are mainly used to download
