We have a Windows Server 2008 enterprise which WSUS is installed on that machine. Currently C has no more space ( 0 Byte) and we can not connect to the WSUS management server console. I don't know What I can remove under c:\Windows to make more space.

Please help

Can you install the WSUS management console on another PC and run a server cleanup from there?

To do: Run the WSUS installer on a desktop and opt to connect to the server remotely.

Delete files under these folders.

c:\windows\temp
C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution
C:\Windows\Minidump
run cleanmgr

then run wsus console and run server cleanup.

run treesize and detect other large folders and deleted unwanted files.

I would delete the WSUSContent folder and then move where WSUS stores its updates.
Then you can run WSUSUtil.exe RESET which will redownload the updates to the new location.

"The only way to clean up your WSUSContent folder in the fewest amount of steps is to RESET the WSUS server and re-download the content for all approved updates."
