Removing WSUS from SBS2011

Am trying to get rid of WSUS from an SBS2011 server. Ran the Server Cleanup Wizard, which took MANY hours, and the end result was a database error screen. Rerunning the cleanup wizard yields the same screen, but only after a few minutes.

Have moved all computers to Update Service Excluded Computers.

The WsusContent folder still has 17GB of stuff in it. The WSUS db is on a separate drive.

Can I just follow the procedure in https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd939818%28v=ws.10%29.aspx to be done with it, then delete the drive the WSUS db is on?
