    I have downloaded WHDownloader and downloaded a huge update of 3.21gb 604 files for win 7 x64/updates

    when i click search superseeded it does not find anything or remove anything

    I don't expect to integrate all those updates into the iso with ntlite.

    My question is how do i know which update to get and ONLY those which will make the iso up2date without bloating it with additional updates which is not necessary.

    Hi, the reason the "Search Superseded" function didn't find anything is because all those updates you downloaded are current. But there are many that you probably won't need to install.

    abbodi1406 (maintainer of the WHDownloader lists) took the time to write up info txt files that you'll see in many of the folders. Reading those files will help you understand what you should install and what you may not need.

    You'll want to install the updates in the Security, General and Hotfix folders (roughly 42 updates).

    There are probably some from the Additional folder that you'll want to install (e.g. IE11 updates).

    Most (if not all) from the Extra folder will probably not be needed. But look in the txt file in that folder for more info.

    Also, WHDownloader has it's own thread where you can find a lot more info: https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/44645-WHDownloader-Support-and-chat
