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