Move WSUS folders to other drive?

SBS 2003 box, 10 users, don't use WSUS. Desperate need more space on c drive. Sometime back, ran export command and most folders were moved from c drive to d drive but left MSSQL$WSUS> data, install and log folders. Data folder has susdb.mdf files that is 8 gb. Can I just delete, or xcopy over to d drive or what? Thx.

That command line only *Copies* it does not move the data. You can safely delete the WSUS content folder on the drive that you moved/copied from.
