SCCM - Windows software update content information

Is there a way to check how the content of a software update package is build (the different links in "Content Information" tabs)

We have been installing monthly updates for workstations with SCCM for years without problem. However since last month, the package contains large WIM files for FoD, language packs, ....

This resulted in a dramatic increase of the update package size and is now saturating the lines from our site server to the DPs

Here is the difference between March and May:

Here is the list of files downloaded, I would expect to have only

We suspect that some alterations were done to the workstation deployment image but we would like to find out why SCCM considered that all those files needed to be downloaded. Thank you!

    Hi jm3338,

    Starting April monthly updates cycle, Windows 11 22H2 devices receive updates from the Unified Update Platform (UUP), this is why the size has been increased compared to the old months.

    You can find more details in the following blog:

    Hi Youssef,

    Thank you very much, that's definitely the root cause.

    Actually I found that indeed the wim files were not distributed a second time to DPs
