I have functioning wsus 3.0 server, windows 2003 server.  Over the years I have previously approved windows 2000 security updates.  I no longer  have any windows 2000 computers on my network.  What is the easiest way to remove these updates and all of their associated files to free up disk space on my server?

Thanks,

With regards to the WSUS Server cleanup Wizard, if it hasnt been run in a long time....it is recommended to select one at a time as you run it. Otherwise it could take ages to complete.

I used information from both of these posts to accomplish the task.  I declined my windows 2000  updates and then I ran the server cleanup wizard under options.  It cleared out over 5gb of harddrive space.  I also use the sql script to run maintenance on the database.   thanks for the help.
