I recently setup a new WSUS server on 2008 R2. I didn't give the drive that stores the WSUS folder enough space to store all of the updates and the drive quickly filled up before it could finish downloading all of the initial updates. I've since expanded the volume that stores the updates, but all of the updates that were approved and couldn't be downloaded before the drive filled up still show "The files for this update have not yet been downloaded" a week later.
We've had a few other updates that we've been able to approve/download since we expanded the drive, and they've been working without any issues.
How do I get these updates to download?

You can create/attach another drive with a space that better suits your needs and use the wsusutil movecontent command just to move content to this drive:

After running wsusutil movecontent to move everything to a new drive the updates started downloading.
Thank you for your help!
