Windowsupdate uses networkdrive as tempfolder?
Hi everyone,

I've noticed that everytime i use windowsupdate, either manualy or
automaticly - it downloads all the updatefiles to my networkdrive and
installes from there, instead of using either my C: or D: drive.
Does anyone have an idea to a solution to this, as everything would work
alot faster from a localdrive rather than a networkdrive.

WU will use the drive with the most free space available by default, so
either free up some space on your other drives or disconnect from the
network drive before updating.
