After re-reading the article & comments. It will only download what you need. I just did a refresh of windows update. The October 2016 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 is only 72.6 MB

I don't know why Microsoft used the word preview though.

The preview is a separate update. That contains a preview of next months recommended updates before they're included in next month's full package.

There are 3:

1) Security-only Quality Update

2) Security Monthly Quality Rollup

3) Preview of Security Monthly Quality Rollup

All badly named and confusing in my opinion

Isn't the Security only quality update only available through windows catalog?

I thought number 2 was suppose to be called November 2016 roll-up update, like previous roll-ups.

Why would you want a preview? I take it the preview is beta software then.

I am totally lost. I read them again & the links as well.

Here is what I understood originally.
You get a monthly security updates that is only available through windows catalog.
You get a monthly roll up which includes the above security updates via windows update.
You get a monthly roll up of Microsoft Net if needed via windows update.

So why all this extra stuff?

Because Microsoft has a bunch of cowboys and hay hands in charge of naming these various updates and because they aren't particularly interested in all things Windows 7. Plain speaking and English comprehension are in short supply at MS.

You can:

1: remain subservient, shut up and live with it

2: move to Windows 10

3: move to Linux

4: disregard all updates

5: move to Macintosh

6: depart computers entirely

I'm sure I'm leaving something out, that's just my first pass at trying to make sense of it. My first mistake was thinking it could possibly make sense to me, a mere mortal home user.

Hi,
Yep I haven't touched win-10 in so long it is silly to have it on a 500gb ssd
Might transfer it to a 120gb ssd soon enough or a hdd.

I have set it hidden directly, this one :

October 2016 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

It appears to be a 120,5Mb patch for x64bit based system.

Plus, you'll have to go in Registry settings:
Quote:
By default, on Windows 7 SP1, support for sending usage and diagnostics information through an authenticated proxy is not disabled (0x0), and the Diagnostic and Telemetry service will impersonate a logged-on user to authenticate with the proxy to send information. You can configure this behavior by using the following registry subkey:
  1. Locate and then select the registry subkey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection
  2. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
  3. Type DisableEnterpriseAuthProxy, and then press the Enter key.
  4. In the Details pane, right-click DisableEnterpriseAuthProxy, and then click Modify.
  5. In the Value data box, type 0 (not disabled) or 1 (disabled), and then click OK.
You can also configure the Diagnostic and Telemetry service to forward usage and diagnostics information to a specific proxy server by using the following registry subkey. You can specify the FQDN or IP address of the proxy server and optionally a port number.
  1. Locate and then select the registry subkey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection
  2. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click String Value.
  3. Type TelemetryProxy, and then press the Enter key.
  4. In the Details pane, right-click TelemetryProxy, and then click Modify.
  5. In the Value data box, type serverport, and then click OK.
The only stand-alone package i was able to download from Microsoft Update Catalog was the KB3192321 (a daylight saving for located country): http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=3192321
