WSUS - Error Download Failed 0x80246002

Hi,

Have had WSUS running for some time with no problems. A couple of weeks ago I accidentally deleted the WSUS folder. I undeleted it (with easy undelete) and all the content is still there (5GB in size) and all seems ok. Ever since this happened though none of the updates before that time work. New updates work but nothing before the time that i restored the folder.

This is the error I am getting in WSUS:

Error Download Failed. 0x80246002

Any Idea's how I can fix this without downloading all the updates again (have a 3GB limit on our rural broadband and excess is expensive).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes it deploys any new updates. But anything prior to me restoring the folder it does not. So if I connect a new PC to the domain all updates fail except the ones syncronised after i restored the WSUS folder.

If i reinstall WSUS will that mean i need to download all the updates again?

of that im not 100% sure, considering that you have them all then i would think logically no, but obviously when you delete them then they lose some form of linking that i have no idea at all how to get back :( you can try reinstall but i would say the link has gone already, although if the existing files are in the same folder that the new ones are going to maybe it will link when you try and download...

Hi Jay_Jay,

Had to re-install WSUS. Used a second server from our office so the remote location server updated WSUS
