I need to free up disk space on the boot drive ("C:\) of a Small Business Server 2003 R2 installation

The boot drive of our Small Business Server 2003 R2 is running out of space. I have already move the user files to another drive (D:) and the Exchange files take only 3.8 gigs.
The problem is the C:\WSUS\MSSQL$WSUS and C:\WSUS\WsusContent folders. Together they use 25 gigs of space.
Can these folders be moved to another drive?
I have installed a new 1TB raid array in addition the 256 Gig array the OS is installed on. The C:\ is 80 gigs with 26 gigs free and D:\ is 152 gigs with 56 gigs free.

I would say simply take a backup or move any older files to another location and leave the recent ones in the current folder

I agree with aadih's recommendation for starters, but you should also review my web page on the topic:

I don't seem to have SBS console available. I will check tomorrow for the original install disks and see if I can install the utility.
