    Is there a way to backup update files of Win 8?


    I format my PC like a every 6 months. The most annoying part is the updates of Windows 8 which is like more than a gigabyte. I want to backup the updates and reinstall them without downloading them again. Is it possible?

    Hi there

    Try this

    WSUS Offline Update - Update Microsoft Windows and Office without an Internet connection

    However THESE STOOOOOOPID developers have got FIXED size screen area so you might not be able to get at the proper buttons and controls-- C'mon programmers haven't you learned YET people have different screen sizes and resolutions - that's why it's called WINDOWS in case you'd forgotten. !!!!!!

    so this tool might be better

    Windows Hotfix Downloader 7.9

    These guys at least know how to program properly !!!!!!

    screenshot 1.

    The top application now makes a real dogs dinner - can't get at the buttons -- it USED to work fine !!!! the hotfix downloader works fine on W8.1.

    look at the mess now -- second screen shot.



    Cheers
