Scenario: Software Update Packages will regularly have a large number of updates removed through supercedence and expiration. However, source files may remain. Further, if a package is particularly large, sometimes the Package Distribution WMI manifest and INF manifest will not line up, leading to distribution errors.
If RCT can review the source path of a target Deployment Package (Software Updates only), it could perform any three of these tasks:
If Update not in Package: Delete subdirectories in source path (by GUID)
If Source Files missing: Remove from Package / [optional Redownload]
Reconcile INF manifest file of package
Doing so will reduce deployment errors, and give patch managers peace of mind regarding orphaned source files.
