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 to be done with it, then delete the drive the WSUS db is on?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To remove WSUS open Server Manager, go to Roles, select Remove Roles and uncheck Windows Server Update Services to remove WSUS.
