WSUS files using too much HDD space RRS feed

  • Question

  • Help. The update files in my wsus server (SBS 2011 Standard) are occupying over 180 gb of drive space. I have changed the storage option to store on the Microsoft update servers and run the Server cleanup wizard but have not recovered significant disk space. Can I simply delete the WsusContent folder as long as the SUSDB.mdf file is preserved?  If this is not a viable solution, can you tell me how to solve this problem?

    Thanks for your help!

  • I started the manual declining of superseded updates, but the list of updates contains 13,411 entries. I have set the advanced approval option to decline superseded updates.  When I set up local storage of updates, the only langage selected was English, and the only catagories were Windows 7 and newer and Office.  There must be a more efficient way to reduce my storage space.
