    Will max reliability be compromised in any way if I don't use it?
    I use to offline integrate updates running Simplix Pack which does not have that rollup... :g:

    You're welcome! I have a lot of practical work this year, so the board exams will have to wait a bit longer...

    @MrX: Yes, this cumulative update ensures that everything is on the LDR branch, and there are no mixed GDR/LDR update files in winsxs. I have discovered that the servicing stack cannot always handle properly the compressed files when you have GDR+LDR branch files: sometimes the compressed GDR base file may be used as the active version. This means you'll be running Windows with a system file that is invalid.

    Also, a potential improvement in rebase cleanup: Delete (using the powerrun tool) all superseded driverpacks from C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DriverStore. They are redundant since you won't be able to uninstall updates and revert to them, but rebase won't auto-remove them.
