Thanks NoN!

Is it advisable to install/run this tool even if I haven't had any problems installing updates so far?
Or, is it better to NOT use this tool until/if a problem with updates happens?
To me it sounds like a repair tool to check for issues and try to fix them, similar to SFC /scannow.
And, part of me thinks "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

The tool is basically a huge funpack of the manifests and MUM/CAT files present in Windows - it won't do any harm to run it, but if you're not seeing any problems, then it won't do anything for you.

The x64 version now approaches 375MB before unpacking - and up to 3.5GB after! (just for fun I started doing the relevant ones for Windows 7 x64 Client last night.... got as far as 1.93GB before I called it a night, and was less than 1/2 way through - 170,000+ files involved!!)

The Reg.exe utility does not compress a registry key when the utility saves a registry key to a hive file.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You try to make copies of the registry or of the registry keys on a computer that is running one of the following operating systems:
    • Windows Vista
    • Windows Server 2008
    • Windows 7
    • Windows Server 2008 R2
    • Windows 8
    • Windows Server 2012
  • You use the reg save command to export the registry key into a hive file.
In this scenario, the reg save command does not compress the registry key during the exporting process. Therefore, the size of the hive file may be larger than expected.

Resolution:
A hotfix is available to resolve this issue. After you install this hotfix, you can use the /c switch in the reg save command to compress the registry key. For example, the following command compresses the HKLM\System subkey:reg save hklm\system %windir%\system32\config\system.lkg /y /c.

Request Hotfix:
The Reg.exe utility does not compress a registry key when the utility saves a registry key to a hive file

Workaround:
To work around the issue, you can manually export a registry key into a hive file by using the Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) utility. The Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) utility exports a compressed registry key into a hive file.
