Hi,

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?

Well..now, 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?

Yes, that is the better option for WSUS contents.

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

Command to move Contents:
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:\
