My understanding is that you can manually delete the contents of the wsuscontent folder, you just have to run the wsus reset utility afterwards.  If the wsus server in question is a replica server, and the settings to store wsus files locally has just been changed to "no", why is a reset required.

Thanks, I am new to this and assumed that the wsuscontents folder contained only updates and not information pertaining to wsus as a whole.
