    Win10 keeps on downloading update ?


    Was on 1903 for a while and had problems, went back to 1809.
    Now Win10 keeps on adding 3GB to my C drive . I assume it is
    1903 update. I delayed feature updates in 1809 for 365 days
    I their a way I can delete the file that they loaded?

    Thanks
    Gary

    Use the Command Prompt to Clean Up the SxS Folder. Launch the command prompt with admin privileges.
    Enter the command:

    Code:
    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    You can also add /ResetBase to further reduce the component store size. The installed Windows Updates cannot be uninstalled after the/StartComponentCleanup with /ResetBase operation is completed.

    Code:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase

    See if you have a hidden $GetCurrent folder.
