WSUS Update folder on Server 2008 to large
Posted on 2013-06-17
I am having real fun and games with my SBS 2008 server. I am struggling with disck space on my C Drive and are now experiancing issue with exchange dissmounting the mailbox store due insuficient space for the transaction log.
My main culprit is the WSUS folder which now sits at about 29.7gb. This is causing me a massive headache. I have attempted to clean this up, but wasn't aware the process was so long and had to end the clean up and eventually kill the MMC.exe as it was just sitting idle. I have read that the cleanup can fail if the WSUS folder has reached capacity 30gb?
I have altered the config for WSUS and changed to it to downloading updates to just download the headers from windows update. I now have a dilema, I have 29.7gb's of files can I move these to a temp folder on another drive to free up space? I can't use the cleanup wizard as it just hangs?
any input would be appreciated?
