backing up windows updates before formatting H/D

  Mark-335400 00:43 10 Apr 2003

Does anyone know of a way of how to backup the downloaded windows updates, as I have done 3 clean installs over the last 8 months and are getting fedup of the down time that is needed for Windows update to bring the system up to date.
Thanks in advance

daygo,i saved mine but it was directly after downloading them,i dragged them out of temp internet files.

so if you cant find a solution,remember for next time.

PS its actually quicker for me to download them on BB and install,than install from back up as each update (about 20) requires a restart,and when downloading there is only 3 that i have to do seperate and restart,the other 15 all install at once.

but unfortunately BB's got to go,i'll be back on 56k soon and the back ups will be useful.

Just download from the Windows Update Catalog accessed via the regular Windows Update Page
