Please see bug 685675 which is reported fixed.  I have Win7 64-bit, VS2010, a fairly fast system (Core i7 2.2GHz, 8GB RAM) and started to update the help library:
 - I don't see a way to do partial updates
 - 220MBit/sec Ethernet tap to a T1 line
 - Current on Windows Update as of 1/9/2013.
 - Started an update (212 packages), power failed about 12 hours later and the update was STILL NOT DONE
 - Started the update again and it started back at downloading package 1 of 212.
The previous bug was reported as fixed.  This is not consistent with my experience.  Possible testing error, please see "Steps to reproduce".

Thank you for posting a bug in Connect on the Help viewer. The Help viewer in Visual Studio 2012 addresses this issue. If a book down load process is canceled, the next time the Help viewer will continue the download form where it stopped when interrupted in the previous session.

Thank you,
