    Updating Offline Computers


    If I have 3 of the same computer systems can I update them from files I get from online computer? Can I just copy the Windows/SoftwareDisribution/download/ folder to the other two? if so do I need to copy anything else. Running on a metered connection makes it hard to keep all updated.

    You can download all Windows 10 updates and install the updates offline with WSUS Offline Update program.

    You have to read help documentation for the WSUS Offline Update application. If the Windows updates exist at "Windows/SoftwareDisribution/download" folder you should able to install the updates to same Windows version.

    Morning All
    I'm not able to download the WSUS Offline Update tool at this time,ran out of data for this month. Just looking for some feedback on this,does it only search for updates on the computer its installed on? What I need is a program that will run from usb stick and search the computer its on to check for updates,not sure if their is a program like this. Being on a limited data plan its hard to keep 3 computer updated,I think its very important to keep computers updated. Just need a way to update one on line and do the update to the other two offline. All three are the same OS and ver. guess i'm looking for the best way to do this on my data plan.

    You can't reuse what has already automatically downloaded and installed. You can however save updates and manually install if you so desire. The WSUS Offline Update tool will download and saves Windows updates from Microsoft and allows you to install Windows updates offline.

    Thanks FreeBooter
    Guess my question is does this only check the computer its install on for updates or just all MS updates. I would like something to only check for updates for the computer its installed on. Don't want all MS updates,just the ones my computer needs.
