I updated Adobe Acrobat DC from version 19.10.20100.325521 to 19.12.20035.332343 on Windows 7 SP1 x64 Ultimate, and I see that I lost 467.628032 MB in the process. Since the update seems minor, I assume that most of the lost space comes from update temporary files. The update was done through Adobe Acrobat DC -> Help -> Check for updates.

Where are Adobe Acrobat DC update temporary files located?

I unsuccessfully tried (the update was done on 2019-07-14 at around 8 PM):

I know this thread is a few months old, but I had this question myself, as my FW was blocking the download of the Acrobat DC update and I had to go thru some diagnose & testing to correct my FW policies.

I found the Adobe Acrobat DC update file(s) in:


Hope this helps others.
