Preserve Windows Update files

Lately  I had to bring back to life an old Windows XP vm, and … tadaaa … tons of downloads from Windows Update. 🙂
Well, lots of files to be saved for next sleeping WinXP vm to restore.

This is directory where Windows stores Windows Update file:  %WINDIR%\SoftwareDistribution\Download\
