Windows 7: when going the "monthly rollup" route, how to prevent BLOATING?

when going the "monthly rollup" route, how to prevent BLOATING?

so if I choose the monthly rollups instead of the security updates, I noticed a huge flaw:

the size added to the hard drive is equal (even larger maybe because compression) to the size of the newer rollup

that makes no sense since rollups are cumulative (that's their only advantage tbh but it's a big one for me)

suppose I install one rollup, say 200mb size, then I install the next rollup, say 210mb size which is suppose to include the fixes of the first rollup...the logic says the difference in used disk space should be minimal no?
instead the next rollup appears to act as if I never installed any previous rollups, and adds another 200+ mb to disk space

and of course the built-in Disk Cleaner is useless as usual only nets me a couple of mb

so here's my question: is there a way to prevent bloating after each rollup? my partition's only 70gb size & resizing it would be a PITA (there's several other data partitions on my HDD)

Hi 7point5,

Try running this in a CMD prompt (or create a Batch file and link it to a shortcut on your desktop if you like it) and see if it helps!
It gives you EXTRA options of what you can clean.

cd C:\windows\system32 
%SystemRoot%\System32\Cmd.exe /c Cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & Cleanmgr /sagerun:65535
I hope this helps!
