C:\ Drive on SBS2011 almost out of space

We have a customer with a Windows SBS2011 Server and they are down to 7GB of free space on their main C:\ drive - the WSUS file is over 42GB - is there a quick method to reduce the size of that?

This is a fairly good guide:
https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/sbs/2009/09/23/how-to-move-wsus-content-and-database-files-to-a-different-volume/

I'd also look at moving the page file and print spool folder.

This should help : https://xenappblog.com/2016/how-to-clean-up-wsus/

Let’s clean up WSUS by running the following commands:
net stop wsusservice
cd "C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools"
wsusutil.exe reset
echo Delete WSUS Folder Content
pause
net start wsusservice

Open in new window

I tried to move the content thru the SBS Console and it said it could not move it - says the repository cannot be set
