I have tried many solutions but I have not the desired result.
I think I need a tool that can move or delete files that are an unwanted language.
for example, move or delete files that are in German language,
and so do all the files with unwanted languages

someone can tell me if there is a tool to do what i want?
I appreciate your help

Could not complete purge content as reset agent did not complete!

It will probably be easier to uninstall and then reinstall.
When you go to uninstall you'll be prompted
whether you wish to remove the database, content, and logs. Chose to KEEP
the database and logs, but REMOVE the content. When you reinstall, assign
the same pathname for the ~\WSUS folder. The new installation will
automatically find your existing database, complete with approvals, but
there will be no content on the system.
