    Hello all friends,

    I am on Lenovo T61. I often use the Windows Update to download the MS update. I am wondering if there is a way that I can copy/save the update files (installer) for next use if I wish? I remember there should be a temp folders located those files... which path pls? I tried to search here but no found...
    Waiting for your help.

    Regards

    I am pretty sure that is it, just rename the file file.cab and extract with winrar...

    Is not working, my ass.

    There are cab files without the *.cab extension. You have to add the *.cab extension so you could open them.

    You must look into WindowsUpdate.log and grab download links:D

    Yeh This is Real, Sorry For my First Post...

    Do it Manually...

    First Go to "C" then "Windows" .......

    then U Will see the Size of the Download Folder is nearly 400MB (in Case of Me)...
    Inside that U Can Find All the Updates...
