"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In native WSUS that's not possible. You can have only 1 content store in WSUS. Example - You have downloaded Windows 7 updates and  If you move the content store to different location, then the actual content store doesn't have the files, WSUS will re-download it.

Important to note is that the downloaded files are .cab format which means that you can install it manually like how we run setup.exe.

If I understand your question correctly, offline WSUS might provide you with the desired functionality

Even though this is moot, WSUS will *NOT* re-download anything unless you were to run the Wsusutil.exe reset.
