In IIS we've changed the content folder to a new local path (on a different drive with more storage space) and moved the files from the old WsusContent folder.  So, WSUS delivers that content just fine.  However, when WSUS acquires new updates they don't go in the WsusContent folder on the new drive but stay on the original drive.  How do we change the location where WSUS stores new downloads?

You shouldn't have moved the content manually.

There is a tool inside the WSUS installation that will move the content for you.

You will need to run that.

wsusutil movecontent D:\wsuscontent C:\wsusmove.log

where D:\wsuscontent is the new location and C:\wsusmove.log is a log file for the move.
