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?

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.

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.
