    Hi all.
    I have summet which is bugging me about Windows 7 updates.
    From the Update Repository

    I downloaded the W7 x64 post sp1 files. In the folder there are over 300 hundred files.
    Using WUD for the same version only gives me 69 updates.
    Doing a fresh install then manually downloading each update only gives me 60 odd files.

    Why does the repository have so many files ???

    Do we need all those files, updates and hotfixes ?

    I am in the midst of making myself an up to date W7 disc. So I would like to know is it best to use all the 300+ files.

    Not all, hotfixes are usually designed to solve a specific problem and are not always necessary. If you do not have the problem that the hotfix resolves, there is no need for it.
    Always read the Knowledge Base concerning updates to see if they are required.
