Hi I support a company that has a sbs 2003 sp2 server and the disk space is running out due to a huge wsus folder, I have gone into wsus administration but cannot find the cleanup wizard anywhere

How can I clear this down

Hi there is no other disk volume to move it to, the data folder is 240 GB in size and I'm running out of space fast

The Cleanup Wizard is under the Options section in the console view(usually)
Look under the Syncronisation section you'll see Options - is it not in there?

Superior storage. Superior surveillance.

WD Purple drives are built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition security systems. With support for up to 8 hard drives and 32 cameras, WD Purple drives are optimized for surveillance.

Thanks for Posting that ok I can see you are using a2008 version, I have looked in the wsus administration web page and I have also looked in server manager update services but cannot find this clean up wizard anywhere the only difference I can see between mine and yours is that I am using sbs 2003.

There are not that many options in either places so I am at a loss just cannot seem to find it

Well the 2 versions don't really look that different - are you saying you don't have an Options section - or that the Cleanup link just isn't in the window?

See this post for another way to run this cleanup - http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/105284-the-wsus-cleanup-wizard-on-sbs-2003-and-sbs-2008

Right, can't say I've ever come across that before...looks like the only option is the command line, see how you get on with that link I posted, hopefully will get you out of jail...
