We are running WSUS on a WindowsServer 2012 R2 VM, on a very limited satellite link. While our updates are downloading (every first Tuesday). I can view the download start date, file size and the amount of data downloaded on the Summary screen. Once the download is complete, I don't have this information on that screen. Where can I find a log that shows when downloads from Microsoft started and finished, and the file size downloaded?

If you know what you are looking for, you can probably do a search using a regex or select-string command in powershell..

You could also use an editor like atom and search easily that way.
