Change destination for WSUS folder

databoks used Ask the Experts™

I have a 2008 sbs server running WSUS server. The destination folder of the WSUS content is "C:". The folder content is over 12 GB and the size has become a problem. I have a D: partition with plenty of space. Is it possible to move the WSUS folder from C: to D: - and how is it done?

Kind Regards

Hi thanks

The guide you refer to uses the command of WSUSutil.exe. In order to do this you need to run on a 32-bit platform. SBS 2008 always runs on 64-bit - is that a problem?

You should not have any issues running 32-bit software on a 64-bit machine. The other way around would not be possible but this should still work.
