  • If a client machine downloads and installs updates on a machine from WSUS server, will the machine store the update files in the folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download always? Even after installing the update successfully on the machine.?

    Thanks!

  • Can i get an exact time when it clears the update files from the folder?

    The Windows Update Agent should purge the files from the ~\Download folder no more than 10 days after successful installation.

    If you find files/folders in the ~\Download folder older than 10 days, you can safely delete them from that folder.

    Yes, after the successfull install the contents of that folder fade slowly over a couple of months. That folder (softwaredistribution) should be self maintaining.
