How do I backup Windows Updates?

  Raywood 11:47 15 Feb 2004

I have collected a number of updates for Windows XP. Is there a way that I can put these on CD-R. As a 56k modem used I wouldn't like to spend ages downloding them all again if something happened.

Where are they? If already applied using the WindowsUpdate site, then they are not available; if you saved them locally, then they can be burned to CD like any other file.

If you've installed the updates via windows update then no you cannot.

If you downloaded each update as a *.exe then just pop the *.exe over to a CD.

buy the windows mag with the updates on its free disk , you can not save the updates on computer .you have to go through it again when you replace xp, mind you not all those updates will be to date ..ask pc advisor to put a disk on with the xp updates eh ,,, what about it

if the downloads were recent you will find them in your temp internet files, just drag them into my docs or somewhere.

Check out website as they provide EVERY Windows Update in 1 .exe file, plus a host of really useful software to gi with it... It's 1 download but a really worthwhile download... Who knows, maybe you can find AutoPatcherXP on a Cover CD somewhere to save you downloading it on your 56k...
