Removed the "Hard-Drives and Storage" Zone, and instead added the "MS-OS", "Windows OS" and "MS Server OS" Zones, as this is an OS question and has nothing directly to do with hardware.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can delete the contents of \SoftwareDistribution\Datastore and \SoftwareDistribution\Downloads (don't delete the folder itself, just it's contents and sub-folders). To do that you will have to temporarily stop the Windows Update service. And of course when you run Windows updates, these folders fill up again, so it is a good idea to do this regularly.
