    Locating Windows 10 update files on hard drive


    I have reinstalled Windows 10 so do not have any old Windows 8 residue.

    I need these files to create a new profile with NTLite for a reduced footprint on any reinstallation.

    Any ideas, a google search does not really help ?

    Most likely they have been overwritten so no forensic SW could find them, in that case unless you work for CIA or NSA they are gone forever !!!

    Hello Count Mike
    I'm not referring to the Windows 8 update residue but the updates since Windows 10 as a standalone was installed, which must be stored in C:/Windows somewhere
