Incremental SEPM/GUP updates for 60 days needed at low bandwidth branches

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I've got a client whose remote workers at some branches connect every 45-60 days. The branches have low available bandwidth, and the workers connect only for short amounts of time when they visit their branches - often not long enough for a full 200mb update. The SEPM server currently would have to hold 80 gigabytes of content (1 set per day * 32bit and 64bit definitions) in order to provide delta updates for that time period. Is there a way to increase the GUP paramenters to retaining 60 days of deltas while running the SEPM content at 30 days, or some other way of avoiding such a huge storage requirement on the SEPM server?

For the roaming clients I would suggest to create new policy and assign to them, 

this will make them to get updates automatically. Check this document

I would recommend you to create a different Update Policy for the Roaming Clients, so that they can fetch the content directly from Symantec Site when they are Off the LAN and connect SEPM when they ON the LAN

If you want the remote GUP to store more content you will need to modify the settings below, which are located in the liveupdate content policy -> Group update provider.You will need to raise the maximum disk cache size significantly as well and the number of days before deleting content updates. Make sure you have sufficient HD space on the GUP.
