WSUS database

Hello, I'm running WSUS version 3.2.7600.226 on server 2008 (SP2)

I'm trying to run the "server clean up wizard" but keep getting an error. Please see attached.
Can someone please provide the steps needed to fix this?

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

Try this ...

Run the "Delete Computers" option (#2) if you have computers to be deleted. (If you don't, there's no point in running it.)

Run the "DECLINE expired updates" and "DECLINE superseded updates options. (#4 and #5).

Run the "DELETE unneeded updates" (#1) option. This is typically the option that is causing the problems.

If you're able to get through step #3, then you can run the "DELETE unneeded files" (#3) option.

Server cleanup wizard should be able to run successfully in that order.

jpam... that is my problem... its a 75 GB drive but there is only 25 megs left... I'm trying to clean out the wsus, but can't.
zoldy2000... i tried your suggestions and still getting the same error.
Been there, done that.  Can you add space, is it a RAID disk you can add another hard drive?
Mine is virtual so was easy to add space from datastore.
