    I am upgrading a NOD32 Anti-Virus 2.7 multi Business License to a multi Business License ESS 3.0. We have only one computer that is connected to the internet and several that are not. I would like to update them by transferring the updates by flash drive as they are not networked. I have installed ESS 3.0 and turned on the Mirror on the one machine that is connected to the internet and have the updates in a folder on the Mirror machine. Would it work to list the update server on the non-internet computers as a local folder: C:\Eset Updates\ and then just copy over the updates by flash drive to the local machines, put them in the folder and hit update every so often? Will that path work as the "server" ? I am assuming that I do not need to turn on the Mirror function on the non-internet computers to be able to pick up the updates locally on each machine. Sorry if this is all obvious but it looks like this has changed a bit from 2.7. Thanks!

    Yep, that will work fine. I just tested updating from the Flash Drive itself and it worked without any issues. Don't worry about hitting update. Allow the default schedule to check the local update folder whenever it normally does. If you've refreshed the local copy of the mirror, the update will occur.
