    How to take a copy from Windows Updates?


    Hi
    I have 2 PC with windows 8.1 enterprise installed.
    Is there a way to update one PC and then copy this updates to a Flash disk and update the other pc with this offline update ?
    Actually I want to askو where the update files store? and if I get a copy from them, do it work for update other PC?

    Clint thanks for your help. but I already update one of the PCs to the latest updates. I download 800MB and don't want to download it again, so want to find a way to copy this updates to another PC.

    If the machines are exactly the same architecture and you keep them updated the same, just update one machine then copy/paste the contents from C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download from one machine to the other.

    When you do a Windows Update on the second machine, it will start out normally and will skip over downloading and go right on to installing.

    You can delete the contents of the folder at any time you wish. Just don't do it while a reboot is pending.
