    Best way for Updates

    Hello all, did a Google search and just can't find a lot of answers on this so here I am
    Right now using WHdownload to keep up with updates,not sure this is the best way to go. Have 3 computer in house so moving updates from one to other to save data downloading. When Microsoft does the update it goes into a distribution folder then installs I think,does the KB file stay in that folder after it's installed?With using WHdownloader I download the whole KB file,sometimes it over 500MB. Does windows download the same size file if all my other updates are current? With only 10 GIG of data a month this is getting hard to stay in the plan. If the updates stay in the windows folder after install maybe this is the way I should go. Looking for all suggestions on this subject, seems like a lot of smart people here.

    Thank You

    You can set your connection as metered to prevent windows from downloading updates. That will help.
