    I have done some research on this, but it seems that the downloads is not completely saved on the local drive, but there is simple scripts that can be used to list all the installed updates & drivers that was installed from Microsoft so my question is isn't it possible to use such a list import it in some automatic downloader that will re-download it from Microsoft Update Catalog - then one can save this and it is not needed to ever download the same downloads again ?

    Thank you for the link - it seems to give better results then from here: catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx

    I'm sure some one else must have thought about this - especially people who likes to re-install windows on a regular basis and then needs to re-download all the updates again.

    In the mean time I'll use the repository & the link you gave me.
