I recently retired and for the last several years I was responsible for maintaining updates on all of our tech equipment. The person who took over for me is struggling since she's never seen or had to really do these processes on a regular basis. She being encouraged to change the method I used (and has already created a problem I haven't been able to help her fix .. and she can't tell me the steps she had taken that might have caused the software to corrupt). So .. I'm trying to help her justify to upper management that my method works .. don't mess with it.
If you can answer any of these questions for me, it would be very helpful!
1. Do you leave the public access computers on over night to do automatic updates?
2. If yes, do you have any pros or cons for completing updates this way?
3. If yes, what programs are updated automatically besides anti-virus and Windows, that would be typical software required for any general computer user, whether it's at home or in the library).
4. Are software updates done manually on any of the library equipment?
5. If yes, what type of equipment?
