    Don't quote me on this but I think you have to stop the Windows Update service in services.msc....then you should be able to delete those files........I THINK that's what I did......

    I think your right on this. I believe I once saw Brink had posted a tutorial with a batch file you could download and run to do this quickly.

    I take it you mean on by default.
    It can still be set up manually.

    You can set it up all you want but the restore part has been broken for a couple of months:

    System Restore fails: AppxStaging %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApp 0x80070091

    I stopped using SR when I purchased Macrium Reflect. SR uses quite a large amount of disk space, I believe 75% of the amount of memory Since I have 24Gb's that would be wasted space on my SSD. I do an image every night which takes about 4.5 minutes to do..

    This tutorial is to completely stop then re-register Windows Update. For the purposes here you just need to stop WU, use the first two commands from the .bat file in an Admin Command prompt.

    net stop bits
    net stop wuauserv

    Methinks its a false positive....have performed this operation several times on both Insider and public released versions.
    If System Restore is turned on Windows automatically does a Restore point on each update.
    Have just done a restore, which shows your pointed out flaw, then a scannow, and a dism, no fault being found, afterwards checked all Apps plus updated Apps
    Everything appears to be working normally.

    Come to think again, is this really so? Since everyone's complaining their update downloads are so large. I haven't investigated myself and wasn't sure this would be only reason it takes so long for some. But it would make sense, plus the computing time needed to extract what is actually needed of a generic, one fits all rollup.
