server 2008 wsus

I have a question re WSUS on server 2008 64 bit

I can see that the WSUS folder has a huge amount of data and takes up a lot of space (39 gb)
Is it safe to delete these folders or are they needed by the system
I asume that they have been used and are just sitting there

Actually you should move the content and database to a larger partition so that you dont have to worry about it happening again(It will).

You  can...
 You have to decline all the old updates that are probably sitting there and then run the utility program which will delete/purge the files.
WsusDebugTool.exe /Tool:PurgeUnnneededFiles

If I delete the content folders as suggested, then they are put back again according to the procedure, won't I end up back where I started ?
