Should I run Windows updates?

Yes! But not on automatic install.

Microsoft is constantly issuing updates for it's Windows products.  These include enhancements for STABILITY, SECURITY and features.  

Windows can download updates automatically in the middle of the night, this saves a lot of time.  You choose when to install them.

You never want a server with the up-time requirements of a video recorder to reboot when no one is watching.  The possibility of something not going as planned cannot be ignored. 


ALWAYS run a Windows and other software update cycle at minimum once per month.  You should check and update your VMS software at that time as well.
