Removing Updates From WSUS Server

I am running WSUS 3.0 SP1 on a Windows 2003 Standard server. WSUS runs just fine, but what I want to do for organizational and space purposes is to remove all the updates that are currently on the WSUS server as they have already been pushed out to all the clients.

I have tried to decline all of the updates in WSUS and then run:
WsusDebugTool.exe /Tool:PurgeUnnneededFiles

It seemed to find some stuff to delete, but when I go back into the WSUS MMC there are still over 500 updates in there. Running the tool again does no good. Any ideas?
