WSUS partition label changed and problems

Posted on 2013-12-13
Last Modified: 2016-02-21

My WSUS was moved from c:\wsus to w:\wsus partition using movecontent command. Now, wsus is working fine but mdf files are still located at c:\wsus. Can I change this?, our customer wants to change the partition label from w to d but, after changing the letter, the wsus stoped downloading data.

How can I change the letter? Must I create a new partiton D and re-run movecontent?

As far as cocerns to database you can use SQL management studio to move WSUS database

wsusutil.exe movecontent D:\WSUS\ D:\WSUS\move.log

(where D:\WSUS is the destination)

Take note that the wsusutil actually does a copy, so you would still need to delete from C:\
