Where does automatic updates download the file?
When Windows Automatic update download the updates from Microsoft website,
where does these update files gets stored in my local machine?
Is there an option for me to take backup of these files? so that when I
format my drive and re-install windows freshly, I can reuse the same updates
instead downloading them again from the internet.

RE: Where does automatic updates download the file?
1. Auto updates are temporarily downloaded to the
softwaredistribution/downloads folder (assuming we're speaking of WinXP).
2. No you can not save/reuse these updates.
3. You can also download individual updates from the Catalog and save to be
installed later.
http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx

Click Add button for each update you want to download. Once you have what
you want, Click the “Go To Download Basket” link. Type in or browse to the
location where you want the updates saved to and then Click the “Download
Now” button.
Once downloaded, you can then burn them to CD.

How to download updates and drivers from the Windows Update Catalog or from
the Microsoft Update Catalog
