LOCATION OF WINDOWS UPDATES DOWNLOADED FILES

| No comment
Trouble:

You download lots and lots of windows update files from Microsoft. One fine day if your Windows gets ill and need a re-install, you will have to again download all those Windows Updates after a fresh install on windows. It is such a waste of time.



Another case is when you have a computer which is not connected to Internet, what will you do in that case? So the question is:


Can I save the Windows update files for re-use?




Fortunately the answer is Yes! Saving the windows update files on a disk will help you install these files on a fresh installation of windows or to install these updates on a computer which is not directly connected to Internet. For this we need to know which directory Windows updates saves downloaded files to. Lets see the details of how to locate it.

Fix:

Windows Update files are located in ( C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download ) folder

While updates are installing, their file attributes is set to hidden.
You must show hidden and protected files on your PC, by tapping the ALT key and navigate to Tools - Folder Options



Some updates are removed from this folder after installing, however after download, make sure you copy them to any other directory before installation.
