    Hi guys

    In xp the updated files ended up in c:/windows\$... where they could
    be deleted to save space.

    Can't see the same sort of thing in 7, any info on this?

    Best regards

    Tony

    Due to the amount of spam posted via googlegroups and
    their inaction to the problem, I block all articles posted from there.
    If you wish your postings to be seen by everyone you will need to find
    a different method of posting.

    I think the updates initially go to to this folder:
    C:/Windows\SoftwareDistribution
    but as it's only 40 M/b the files probably end up in the WinSxS folder.
    I can't find any hard info about it.
