How can I check the updates size which were downloaded in WSUS?

For example I need to check the updates size downloaded of April 9, 2013 for new 26 updates.

And how can I locale the new updates on the HDD? Note: I have configured WSUS to automatic approval rules. More information I have search in Google and I have found this following site

But unfortunately there is no answer to my question! Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks

To identify the size of the file(s) associated with an update, select the update from an Update View, right click, and choose File Information. In addition to file sizes, the File Information dialog also gives you the filename and pathname of the physical file on the WSUS server.
