Size of each MWB definition update

Recommended Posts

When I travel I am on a data-restricted internet plan, and I normally have MWB set to update several times a day.


I'm wondering about the file size of these updates (not the disk size of the program itself on the hard drive).


(1) Would several updates a day be smaller than one daily update? Or would one update every 1-2 days be smaller?


(2) At any rate, how large are these updates?

Probably less than 20KB each, so they're small.  Updates are incremental unless you miss 20 in a row.  At that point, an update would be the full database, which is less than 10 megabytes.  Updates could fine tune what you receive from earlier missed incremental updates, though there are no guarantees.  If so, fewer updates may equate to slightly smaller size.  That would also mean reduced protection, SO...


Which is more important to you?  I personally would go with better protection, but its your call.
