Downloading media creation tool onto USB not enough disk space

HP Recommended
Dell 1545
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I am trying to download the media creation tool onto a USB stick because I do not have enough disk space with my recovery drive completely full. However as I begin to do so I choose the language and 64bit then it pops up with an error message stating I dont have enough space on my G: drive. Why am I not able to bypass the G: drive and set up the media creation tool on the USB?

The Media creation tool can only be run from the PC's hard drive with Windows on it, not a USB flash drive.


The only suggestion I can offer would be to use another Windows PC that has sufficient disk space to run the Media creation tool on.
