I just restored my dying laptop to factory settings. I'm still going to get a new Win10 machine and keep this one for a back-up.

Question: Do I have to install the updates going back to 2014 when I got the machine? I chose to not have the updates installed automatically so I get to choose. Which ones are good ones? Since this is just a back-up device, maybe I don't need any updates.
