WebInspect SmartUpdate - restrict what is downloaded?

I have a server with limited disk space and don't want to keep installers for all versions and all languages hanging around.  Moreover, if I delete them to clear disk space, SmartUpdate wants to re-download the next time I request an update.

Is there a way to restrict which lanaguages or which versions are downloaded by SmartUpdate?

Failing a way to restrict what is downloaded, is there a way to at least change the path to a different drive?  Currently I am seeing it going into C:\ProgramData\HP\WIE\Manager|SmartUpdatePatches\WebInspect.

There's no way to restrict what is downloaded as of yet, however take a look at the WebInspect Enterprise install guide (page 82) for details on how to move the download folder to another location - a shared drive for example.Untitled picture.png

Thanks! That did the trick. I can live with the large amount of disk space consumed by moving it to a different location.
