Hi, I have a 2008 sbs server. And have run out of hdd space, the susdb.mdf file takes up 5.1gb. It's in the  C:\wsus\susdb\updateservicedbfiles  folder
I've found various url's talking about shrinking. But every database in SSMSE 2005 is only a few Mb. I have no idea where in SSMSE the database is.

Can i remove it, shrink or move it ?
