How to change windows update location on my laptop
Currently all windows updates are stored in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder.
I would like to change the location to some other drive as my c drive is getting filled.
I saw using WSUS utility but I am not sure if it works on my laptop as that is something for server.
Please suggest me how to do it.
Also let me know if I can delete these update folders once its installed.
I am using WIN 7 ultimate 32-bit

Hopefully this helps:
Click the "Start" button on your desktop. Click the "Control Panel" option.
Double click the "Automatic Updates" icon on the control panel page. This opens a dialog box for setting options to receive, store and install Microsoft automatic updates.
Allow all updates that become available to automatically download and install on your computer by clicking the circle next to "Automatic." Click the drop down boxes to choose the days and time new updates are installed. This option will store the downloads until the installation time selected.
Receive the updates, but install them at your discretion. Click the circle next to "Download, but let me choose when to install." You will be notified when new updates become available. Review each update description to decide if the application is needed.
Choose to save Windows updates externally. Click the "Notify me, but don't download or install" selection to keep update links open. The updates themselves will be saved on the server unless you choose to retrieve and install them.
