How to change the windows update download location ...
Posted on 2011-02-12
Im trying to get a backup of my server over the internet to a server / storage device at my home.
Im taking a snapshot and a continous increment to keep the backup up to date.
Im having an issue, when there is a windows update, depending on its size, some increments take forever to transfer over to my storage device.
Example, if windows update downloads 100mb of updates/installs. it is then changing the system state by 200 - 300mb and because its it removing the updates after then are installed ... my system is changing around 500mb every couple of weeks.
What i would like to know is how to:
1. change the windows download location to a drive that isnt being backed up or part of the backup,
2. Only notify me when updates need to be downloaded and installed.
Thanks in advance.
