Hi All,


I get several messages referring to "attempted to add URL when file has not been previously added" in the windowsUpdate.log ... e.g.  2016-11-21 16:18:36:489 1124 2604 DtaStor WARNING: Attempted to add URL http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/updt/2016/11/windows6.1-kb3197869-x64_2ed61c7693b41a71c247b6dc651cc6889b594d18.msu for file LtYcdpO0GnHCR7bcZRzGiJtZTRg= when file has not been previously added to the datastore


Is it Ok to ignore these warning messages in WindowsUpdate.log ?  there are many warning messages of this nature in the log, since windows update was started (currently "checking for updates").


I expect the windows update to take a long time to complete, as the "Most recent check for updates" in the windows update screen shows "Never" and also the "Updates were installed" line also shows "Never".  I am just concerned in case the said warning messages are an indication that something needs fixing before the windows update has a chance to complete successfully.


Any suggestions would be appreciated.
