Hi, we have some new servers with Win2k16 1607 and every month we suffer with the updating process (we are using WSUS), with Win2k8r2 and Win2k12R2 it is a very fast process, now with this new OS we have noticed the monthly updates are near to 1GB, is there a way to make it more efficient and fast?
