How to purge WSUS updates?

I would like to remove/purge all the unneeded updates from WSUS.
I have declined them in the Windows SBS console but I don't know how to purge them.

I have found a tool for purging the files but it doesn't work on Windows Server 2008 SBS.
Can anyone tell me how to purge the unneeded WSUS files?

Thanks in advance!
Clyde.

Under Adminstrative Tools > Windows Software Update Services

Expand the left side til you see "Options"    Click on Options > Then find and run the Server Clean Up Wizard

Don't do anything else in this console

Have you tried running the Server Cleanup Wizard (under Options in the WSUS console)? This deletes all expired and superceeded updates, computers etc...
