Moving the WSUS Content Folder

Hello Support,

We have a server that has Windows Server 2012 and it has WSUS 3.0 SP2 on it. We are having an issue with the server's storage getting full so fast. Is there a way for us to move JUST the WSUS content that contains all of the updates to a different server and keep the WSUS 3.0 SP2 database on the original server so that we will have enough space for all of the updates. Does the WSUScontent folder have to stay on the local server with the database on it?

Wsusutils includes an option to move the content
C:\program files\update services\tools\wsusutils.exe /?

Depending on your classifications, the folder can Verne large.... Or you are moving it from c:\

We want to move the WSUScontent folder from C:\ on the original server to a different server that is a domain controller such as \\servername\WSUScontent. We want to keep the database on the original and put the storage onto a DC server. Will the move content command be able to complete this task for us or does the WSUS content folder have to be still on the local server but onto a different drive?
