# Creating a Local Update Repository

Create a local Feko update repository to allow users to update without internet access or to limit the list of update versions that users can use. Local update repositories can also be used to reduce the amount of data being downloaded by downloading a repository once and making it available to many local machines or compute clusters.

A local repository folder can be set up using:
1. Create the local repository folder, for example, C:\Updates.
2. If you already have an update repository for the same version, delete previous updates located in this local repository folder.
C:\Updates
