hi in the end i just uninstalled wsus leaving the d:\ where my updates have been downloaded to, in tact.

i have also re-installed the 'os' clean and re-installed wsus and it appears to have connected back ok.

the issue i had was because i had attempted to change my wsus connection to an (https)  type via (iis) i changed stuff in various places and could not get my wsus to resync..

question 1.  even though i did the above it still detected and downloaded updates even though my machines were at (100%) so i am not sure what that is about as my updates on already located on my (d: drive)...that being said i 'approved' those updates and some of my machines showed a (red x), but now have dissappeared and are not ok, but still my master dc, is still showing with a (red x), but as i have switched my machine off at night i realise it may need time to sync, so i am hoping will be ok.. so could you shed any light on that  ?

question 2.  i did do a backup of the wsus but i did not backup the (iis) so thought it would not resolve my issue or am i wrong  ?
