    So this might sound like a joke but i've been seeing "Updates" under storage/ temporary files, basically under all the files you can check and delete.

    And i have several gigs of updates there but once i click on it it puts me to the windows update page without telling me where the updates are and which updates can safely be removed.

    So how can i figure out what can be deleted?

    Would be really nice to know for the future as well so i appreciate the help, as always! :)

    this picture is just an example i've found online:

    Updates refers to the Download subdirectory of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution
